"The List reminds us Trump is not normal, and he's imposing incalculable harm on America. Not only must he be resisted, but we must never again allow our democracy to be imperiled by a demagogue. Our first line of defense is knowledge of what he's doing to America and the world. Here it is." - Robert Reich, former Secretary of Labor and author of SAVING CAPITALISM
"Someday The List will be used as a high school history text book and those students are going to think "what the F@#$." Honestly, I think that too." - Samantha Bee
"A Homeric catalog, in numbered lists, of all the wrongs the current occupant of the White House has done unto the republic... An astonishing roster, documenting history as it is being made and democracy as it is being unmade." - starred review, Kirkus
"An unusual and essential book. It's hard to read it straight through, except that's the whole point . . . I hope Siskind writes 'The List, Vol. II,' and a third and fourth as well. I would read them all. There is strength in the immutability of the exercise, a counter to government by alternative facts." - Washington Post
"More than just required reading for the panicky Resistance, her accounts have become a real-time record of the Trump era, one fallen norm at a time." - Politico
"This document makes clear, in black and white, how norms have changed and the ways in which checks and balances have become frayed." - Booklist
"Illuminating work . . . a worrying document of the current state of American affairs." - Publishers Weekly
"Siskind's compulsively readable book is the real first draft of history." - National Book Review
"A rarely important addition to the existing and growing literature on current American politics. Amy Siskind has done a highly commendable job of writing what can be described [as] the outline of our current history . . . a necessary read not only for students and experts of American politics and history, but also all Americans who care for their country." - The Washington Book Review
"The List is a brutal, necessary mirror. Week by week we see the corrosive power of a regime and a major political party unbounded by ethics, dignity, norms, institutions, and democracy. We see the descent into authoritarianism. We see everything we have lost. We also see the way out." - Carol Anderson, New York Times bestselling author of WHITE RAGE: THE UNSPOKEN TRUTH OF OUR RACIAL DIVIDE
"Amy Siskind's The List is a document of how, millimeter by millimeter, truth, democracy, and the rule of law, WERE beaten down. Not a few fought back--including Siskind. The act of remembering, of not losing one's bearings, is itself a form of resistance that matters, and this book is a testament to that strategy." - Rebecca Solnit, author of HOPE IN THE DARK
"In great detail and with skillful precision, Amy Siskind sounds the alarm on how the United States becomes more authoritarian under Donald Trump by the week. The List enrages but also informs, turning anger into action. It is nothing short of a call to arms for a time in which citizens must become organized. Siskind is keeping track, making sure we never forget, so that we beat back this horrific tide and make sure a turn toward extremism never happens again. Use it to inform and inspire, and as a guide for the way forward." - Michelangelo Signorile, author of IT'S NOT OVER, SiriusXM host, and HuffPost Editor-at-Large
"Amy's work of cataloging our shattered civic and ethical norms will prove vitally important when we seek to restore them after the current assault on the institutions of our representative form of government ends." - Walter Shaub, former Director of the United States Office of Government Ethics

IF there is a Trump Doctrine, it is written in Alternative Facts. Throughout 2017, the Trump administration unleashed a firehose of falsehoods designed to prompt Americans to frantically search for the truth, in the hope they would ultimately stop valuing it. The difficulty in merely gathering accurate information under these conditions—much less organizing a response to it—was intended to exhaust both the critical thinking and political drive of the administration’s opponents. What is the point of speaking truth to power, citizens would ultimately wonder, if power is the only truth?"
