What People are saying about this

Sydney Hyman

What the rest have done, when placed alongside this book, seems on a plane with offerings of greeting card writers.

Arthur Schlesinger Jr.

This brilliant and original book should become a small political classic.

Daniel Boorstin

This brilliant little book..[is] honest, epigrammatic, readable, stimulating, and wise..I know of no other work which tells us so much of the peculiar character of American politics in our day.

William H. Stringer

[The book] assays at several ounces of epigrammatic gold per paragraph..A classic like this should help, by its very existence, to raise the status of politics as a profession.

Richard H. Rovere

Mr. Bullitt is a liberal of the most admirable sort..a man who brings to the world he observes disenchantment, affection, skepticism, sympathy, toughness and wit..A splendid, civilized piece of work—human and humane, funny, hopeful, exciting, and..ennobling, as any civilized work must be.
