Editorial Reviews

Review

"The Wall Street Journal"

Splendid and epic...brilliantly told.



"The Boston Sunday Globe"

Pure narrative history, spun out as a tremendously exciting epic covering nearly six generations.



"San Francisco Examiner"

Impassioned and riveting...only in the great epics of Homer will readers regularly run into a comparable string of larger-than-life swashbucklers and statesmen, heroes and villains.



James Schlesinger

former U.S. Secretary of Defense and U.S. Secretary of Energy

A masterly narrative..."The Prize" portrays the interweaving of national and corporate interests, the conflicts and stratagems, the miscalculations, the follies, and the ironies.
