"Jaffe . . . [paints] a vivid portrait of Sanders's early life . . . brings readers up to date on the bid for the Democratic presidential nomination . . . to demonstrate 'why Bernie Sanders matters.'"
—K. Biswas, New Statesman
“Whatever your politics, Bernie Sanders is an only-in-America original. Jaffe nails the story of the rise of a scrappy kid from Brooklyn and why he won’t quit.”
—Brian Kelly, editor and chief content officer for U.S. News & World Report
“A timely primer on America’s rumpled and lovable socialist.”
—Dana Milbank, columnist, Washington Post
“Harry Jaffe's deep reporting takes us into Sanders’s past to expose the forces that made him a socialist in his early days and the political prowess that propelled a child from Brooklyn to become Vermont’s US Senator and a viable contender for the White House. It’s an improbable story, well told.”
—Michael Isikoff, chief investigative correspondent, Yahoo! News
“At last, the most comprehensive account yet of the life and career of Bernie Sanders. Harry Jaffe has done a remarkable job in this lucid and engaging biography of the radical maverick who keeps defying the rules of political gravity. Whether you love Sanders or hate him, you need to read this book to fully understand him.”
—Mark Feldstein, former CNN correspondent and author of Poisoning the Press
“Jaffe perfectly portrays Bernie Sanders as a product of Brooklyn in the 1950s, the biggest small town in America, the fourth largest city in the country, where each neighborhood was like a village. Jaffe’s reporting captures how Brooklyn and James Madison High School prepared Bernie Sanders to understand the history of the nation and the political and social issues of today.”
—Stephen Joel Trachtenberg, president emeritus and university professor of George Washington University, class of James Madison High School '55
"Harry Jaffe’s . . . readily readable biography, Why Bernie Sanders Matters, provides a good background and history on the events and political philosophy."
—Jim Miles, Foreign Policy Journal
