"I read Official and Confidential with mounting horror, fascination, revulsion... Enthralling" -- Paul Theroux "Summers' book is not just a history of a single hero-sized hypocrite, it is a history of a vast national delusion" -- Hilary Mantel * Spectator * "The exposure we have been waiting for these last forty years" -- Norman Mailer "Garbage... Innuendo, lies" -- Cartha DeLoach, former close aide to Hoover "The book is more exciting, and more damning, than the film...This is bold, excoriating, unmissable stuff." * Independent on Sunday *
