From Library Journal
Crafted with color and drama by an ex-Washington Post staffer, this solid account of the complex events leading to the 1982 AT&T breakup is hard to put down. Coll relates personality, politics, business, and law to bureaucratic maneuvering within and between the government and AT&T. He also assesses the consequences. Based on interviews and documents, the book is a series of short, episodic chapters. Given the effects of the breakup on the consumer, and Coll's stylish telling, the book promises to be broadly appealing. Recommended for academic and public libraries.
