"State of Denial feels all the more outraged for its measured, nonpartisan tones and relentless reporting. It is nothing less than a watershed.... The full story of the Iraq War will be told by historians....This book...will be at the top of their shelves as they proceed to the altar of judgment."
-- Ted Widmer, The Washington Post Book World
"Serious, densely, even exhaustively reported, and a real contribution to history in that it gives history what it most requires, first-person testimony....This is a primer on how the executive branch of the United States works, or rather doesn't work, in the early years of the 21st century."
-- Peggy Noonan, The Wall Street Journal
"Never-before-reported nuggets in every chapter....It offers the most revealing in-the-room glimpse of the Bush administration that we have so far."
-- Walter Shapiro, Salon.com
"State of Denial is brimming with vivid details about White House meetings, critical phone calls, intelligence reports, and military affairs....Impressively detailed and eye-opening revelations about the Bush administration's handling of the Iraq war and its aftermath."
-- Chuck Leddy, The Boston Globe
"Woodward's book is packed with details about the gulf between the information the administration had and the picture it presented."
-- USA Today
"Woodward's trilogy on the Bush administration at war is essential, and compelling, reading."
