Reviews

James Traub, "New York Times Book Review," October 5, 2008
.,."the first book about this new Iraq. It's a first-rate piece of work, probing and conscientious."


David Kirkpatrick, "The New York Times," October 26, 2008
"an admiring account of the troop "surge" in Iraq that Mr. McCain was among the first to embrace."

Colonel Gregory Fontenot, "Military Review," November/December issue
"As a rule, hyperbole is permissible for the 'blurbs' on the jacket of books and not in reviews, but in the case of Linda Robinson's "Tell Me How This Ends," it's a hard one to follow. Robinson's book is among the best written about the war in Iraq...."

"Military Times," November 17, 2008
"The author who persuaded press-shy Special Forces soldiers to open up in the fascinating "Masters of Chaos: The Secret History of the Special Forces" (PublicAffairs, 2004) has done it again. This time, she persuaded Petraeus -- now head of U.S. Central Command -- and others in Iraq to talk, and she listened. And evidently, she took good notes. The result is not as dramatic as "Chaos," but given the themes -- politics and management -- the insights in "Tell Me How This Ends" make the book worthwhile contemporary history and, foremost, military biography."


"New York Times Notable Book of the Year"

John Nagl, "Army Magazine," December issue
"Likely to remain the best analysis of General Petraeus' role in the decisive years of the war in Iraq short of the general's own memoirs."
