“Hedges is a fine writer. And the outrage that fairly pours off the pages of his book gives it punch and gusto.”
—Winnipeg Free Press
“Insightful. . . . [Hedges] is an engaging writer, and his passion alone makes for a compelling read. . . . Offers those of us who dare to refer to ourselves as liberal a lot to think about.”

“Hedges raises some critical points that are as convincing as they are depressing. It’s an important little book for anyone who is concerned with the current state of the Democratic Party and liberalism in general.”
—The Huffington Post
“A sophisticated analysis that’s grounded in much more than just political economy.”
—Beams and Struts
