Editorial Reviews

Review

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.

[A] page turner.... [Lewis'] most ambitious and important book.

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

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.

Illuminating.... It's relevance to readers won't end with the Trump era. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
