His compelling examination of the 'vast, right-wing conspiracy' to take down the esteemed former first lady and secretary of state is immaculately compiled... People on both sides of the aisle tire of being asked to confront this ugly history, but D'Antonio's stirring account demands that we consider it further, especially now. --Ms. Magazine I love this book. It is a thorough and clear-eyed analysis of how a Midwest, Methodist Goldwater Girl became the most vilified woman in America. There really was a right-wing conspiracy; sometimes vast, sometimes half-assed. Michael D'Antonio gives us a riveting account of the decades-long effort to tear down the woman who has been named Gallup's Most Admired Woman more than anyone else. Essential reading. --Paul Begala, former advisor to President Bill Clinton Still, just like the author's previous books, this one is thoroughly researched, clearly written, and often incisive. Hillary lovers will love it; Hillary haters will hate it. --Kirkus Reviews This galvanizing expose will stand as a key resource in the study of sexism and politics. --Booklist, starred review
