Editorial Reviews

Review

"[A] page turner.… [Lewis'] most ambitious and important book."
New York Times Book Review

"Fascinating―and at times harrowing…. Lewis tells an important and timely story, one that all of us who pay for, care about, and want government to work should hear."
NPR

"A hymn to the 'deep state,' which is revealed as nothing more than people who know what they're talking about."
Cory Doctorow, Boing Boing

"[A] spellbinding, alarming analysis of the most serious threats to Americans’ safety happening now from inside the U.S. government."
Quartz

"Displaying his usual meticulous research and fluid prose, [Lewis] makes the federal bureaucracy come alive by focusing on a few individuals within each agency with fascinating―and sometimes heartwarming―backstories.…[A] well-written primer on how the government serves citizens in underappreciated ways."
Kirkus (starred review)

"Illuminating.… It's relevance to readers won't end with the Trump era."
Publishers Weekly

From the Back Cover

Praise for Michael Lewis

"Saturation reporting, conceptual thinking of a high order, a rich sense of humor, and talent to burn."
―Tom Wolfe

"Michael Lewis has a spellbinding talent for finding emotional dramas in complex, highly technical subjects."
―John Gapper, Financial Times

"[Lewis] has a genius for unearthing tales of the counterintuitive."
―Pamela Paul, New York Times Book Review

"The leading journalist of his generation."
―Kyle Smith, Forbes

"Lewis is the kind of writer who creates his own weather system."
―John Lanchester, London Review of Books

"I would read an 800-page history of the stapler if he wrote it."
―John Williams, New York Times Book Review

"[A] master of the character-driven narrative."
―Charlie Gofen, National Book Review
