"This is a story of power, sex and betrayal--but mostly of power." -"The New York Times Book Review" "A thoroughly researched piece of work. Ms. Kelley clearly devoured and digested the extant literature on the family." -"The New York Times" "Kelley's account of the rise and fall of the Bush family is both inspirational and cautionary.

Kelley has brought new information to bear on a family that, for better or worse, deserves her kind of royal treatment." -"The New York Times Book Review" "A sweeping indictment of the mind-set of the [Bush] family, that they grew up feeling that this was their due." -Garry Trudeau," The Charlie Rose Show" "Despite the best efforts of the media, the public is gaining insight into their president as the facts leak out and as Kitty Kelley's The Family: The Real Story of the Bush Dynasty, tops the sales chart." -"Newsday" "Kelley nails the evidence and, although the secretive Bush family will not like it, demonstrates beyond doubt what the American press dared not print." -"The Guardian"
