"A comprehensive, detailed and thoroughly readable account of the CIA safehouses, the brainwashing experiments, the involvement of the universities." "Perhaps the most compelling, well-researched, organized and well-written account of CIA operations ever." "A serious effort to recontruct carefully the details of intelligence agency experiments with 'mind control.'" "One of the most important books of the year... We see the CIA on the cutting edge of inquiry into hypnosis, drugs, brainwashing, personality assessment, psychosurgery, electric and radio stimulations of the brain, the creation of involuntary amnesia, terminal shock therapy." "Fascinating reading." "A wonderful piece of investigative reporting. The best account we'll ever get of one of the seamiest episodes of American intelligence." -- Seymour Hersh
