"Displays the intelligence, invective and stubborn common sense Mr Hitchens brings to his commentaries, be they about the political scene in Washington, the soap-opera travail of the British Royal family or a novel by George Eliot."--"New York Times"
"Hitchens rejoices without inhibition in the pleasure of hating and knows that satire is murder by other means ... . A pen like this is more lethal than most swords."--"The Observer"
"One easily forgets just how good Christopher Hitchens is ... multilingual, well-travelled, hyper-educated, pissed-off, always funny, he has no equal in American journalism, and this book proves it."--"Voice Literary Supplement"
"The fiercely independent-minded Hitchens provides reams of fuel for intellectual conflagration, couched in the luxurious excess of humour ... progressive journalism as it was meant to be."--"The Nation"
"The test of this kind of book is for the reader to be able to open it anywhere and be drawn into the argument; it's a test that Hitchens passes time and time again ... . He can be devilishly funny, but he is also capable of writing with acid seriousness."--"Independent on Sunday"
