"Clear, flowing prose ... The book made me think long and hard about how the pace and priorities of our daily lives can hinder our ability to live as decently and as truthfully as we can." --New York Times

"A tour de force of brilliant insights." --Philip Zimbardo

"An engaging read, packed with cautionary tales ripped from today's headlines ... Even better, [Heffernan] points the way out of the darkness." --Daniel H. Pink, author of Drive and A Whole New Mind
