From the Publisher"Never before has the Jackson gravitas been captured with such brio, honesty, shrewdness and big-heartedness as Frady brings forth in his mesmerizing book."
— The Boston Globe
"Astonishing . . . as subtle and perceptive a portrait as any black writer could have produced of one of the most complex public figures of our times . . . Frady provides such a full-bodied portrait of this awesomely gifted but equally flawed man that it should provoke a repositioning of Jackson's place in history."
"Frady has delivered a thoroughly researched, at times poetically written profile of a towering public man."
— The Washington Times
"Frady's . . . biography of Jesse Jackson, perhaps our era's most spellbinding political preacher, [is] hugely useful in the way [it lays] out for our inspection the split personality of this nation. Frady is one of the best political biographers of our time."
— Robert Sherrill, Los Angeles Times
"What makes this galvanic, richly variegated, novelistic biography ring so true is that Frady . . . manages to balance society's shortcomings with Jackson's own. . . . Frady's biography comes off as voluble and dynamic as Jackson himself."
