"You don't buy Christopher Hitchens's new book because you want to find out whether Bill Clinton is really as terrible a liar as some people say he is. You buy it because you know he is a terrible liar, and the invitation to have a pungent fellow like Christopher Hitchens confirm every prejudice you ever had on the subject, plus a few you might not even have known you had, is an invitation you cannot resist." -- Louis Menand, New York Times Magazine "The smartest guy I've seen on TV ... the Rosetta Stone of scepticism ... the Mark McGwire of sceptics ... he makes me look like a cheerleader." - Dennis Miller, Dennis Miller Love "By far the best of all the books on the Clinton era." - Edward Said, Al-Ahram Weekly "Christopher Hitchens is a remarkable commentator. He jousts with fraudulence of every stripe and always wins. I regret he has only one life, one mind and one reputation to put at the service of my country." - Joseph Heller "If Christopher Hitchens is a Marxist, I want to be one, too." - Florence King, National Review
