"Taibbi, a writer of striking intelligence and bold ideas, is as hilarious as he is scathing" * Publishers Weekly * "A lively set of dispatches [that] unfolds as a comedy [but] slowly turns into a horror movie." * Kirkus Reviews * "Incisive and often incredibly funny . . . Matt Taibbi is the spiritual heir of legendary presidential campaign scribes Hunter S. Thompson and Tim Crouse ... Insane Clown President is a valuable work about one of the most bizarre electoral outcomes in American history" * Santa Barbara Independent * "Scathing . . . What keeps the pages turning in this so freshly familiar story line is the vivid observation and original turns of phrase." * San Francisco Chronicle * "One of the most important voices in contemporary American journalism " * Independent * "Matt Taibbi is one of the few journalists in America who speaks truth to power" * Bernie Sanders * "Matt Taibbi is the best polemic journalist in America" * Felix Salmon * "Matt Taibbi is [Hunter S.] Thompson's heir. . . . " * Seattle Post-Intelligencer * "Taibbi may be the only political writer in America that matters." * Hartford Advocate *
