Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“An extremely valuable chronicle.”  Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“An authoritative and pull-no-punches guide through Trump’s alternative universe….a reader-friendly reference for voters, reporters, and editors.” The Record
“Donald Trump and His Assault on Truth encapsulates the duplicity we’ve been subjected to these past 3½ years in a way that hopefully will deter our future leaders from thinking truth-telling is optional. No pithy hot takes. Just great journalism.”  San Francisco Chronicle
“A great public service of a book.” New Yorker
