Reviews

"A superb tribute to the neglected art of compromise." -- Stanley Crouch * New York Daily News *
"[A] gripping, behind-the-scenes, first-person account. . . . Though he was a front-row participant in the story, he admirably adopts an even-handed approach (not shying away from pointing out O'Neill's missteps) to serve up his big point: political combat is necessary and important for the nation, but it need not be self-destructive and nuclear. . . . Matthews is providing a public service by recounting an era when even the most ardent partisan gladiators could bend toward pragmatism." -- David Corn * Mother Jones *
"A fortuitous pairing of subject and author. . . Matthews's account is pleasant reading, both useful and entertaining. . . The book succeeds in making Boehner's, or the tea party's, House look like a confederacy of dunces, addicted to 'government by tantrum.' Praise for Reagan's skill at reaching across party lines also contrasts with President Obama's stand-offish image. Their clashes looked feverish at the time, but this book is an invitation to join Tip and the Gipper in tall tales about how grand it was in the old country." -- Howell Raines * Washington Post *
"Chris Matthews draws on his 30-year-old journals for [a] rich new book on Ronald Reagan, Tip O'Neill" -- Mike Allen * Politico.com *
"Matthews gives us an engaging, inside perspective (with creditable modesty about his own important role) of the mighty struggle between Ronald Reagan and Speaker Tip O'Neill, and how they bent, when they had to, to the national interest. There are many books written by Reagan's White House staffers, but this is the only account (aside from O'Neill's charming memoir) from inside the Speaker's office, and a valuable addition to American political history." -- John Farrell * author of Tip O'Neill and the Democratic Century *
"Amiable but tough-minded. . . . a solid book." -- Kirkus
