Le Canard enchaîné
"The rise of the one-time alcoholic and business failure is fascinating reading."
"In this scrupulously researched book based on a wealth of documents, the current President of the United States comes across as nothing other than a man under the influence."
"What is new about Eric Laurent's book is that he puts names to the faces of those who haunt the corridors of the White House and lays bare the machinations that were set in motion more than thirty years ago, in the days following the Vietnam War, by certain multimilllionares who wanted to see the United States stripped of its image as a modern and open country and returned to an almost surrealist orthodox morality."
