"The Mueller report is that rare Washington tell-all that surpasses its pre-publication hype...the best book by far on the workings of the Trump presidency. It was delivered to the attorney general but is also written for history. The book reveals the president in all his impulsiveness, insecurity and growing disregard for rules and norms; White House aides alternating between deference to the man and defiance of his 'crazy s---' requests; and a campaign team too inept to realize, or too reckless to care, when they might have been bending the law. And special counsel Robert Mueller has it all under oath, on the record, along with interviews and contemporaneous notes backing it up." --Carlos Lozada, The Washington Post
"This is a document that, like the Badlands National Park, one has to visit for oneself. If you rely on the velvet fog of Attorney General William Barr's Cliffs Notes, you will get an 'F' on the exam... So much of what's in the Mueller report is already known, thanks to what never again should be referred to as 'fake news, ' that reading it is like consuming a short story collection that's already been excerpted in every magazine you subscribe to. But its two volumes nonetheless have the power to shock and appall." --Dwight Garner, The New York Times
"It's amazing how many journalistic stories derided as 'fake news' over the past few years now re-appear in Mueller's recounting -- only this time as documented evidence.... Mueller's contribution to the literature of this period in history will have an expanding readership in the immediate future as well." --NPR
"The Mueller report, Olympian and meticulous, feels like an attempt to wrest back our government on behalf not just of real lawyers but of reality itself." --Laura Miller, Slate
