A New York Times Top 10 Bestseller

“[An] actually fair and balanced, carefully documented biography.”  Jacob Weisberg, The New York Times Book Review

“The book excels at compiling data establishing Ailes’s control freakishness and authoritarian nature. . . . A veteran of the New York media-reporting scene, Sherman nails the Fox News palace intrigue and brings to light interactions that Ailes clearly never wanted to go public.”  Erik Wemple, The Washington Post

“A thoroughly reported look behind that curtain . . . Part of the reason [Ailes] and his allies have campaigned against the book is not because it is false, but because it tells a true story.”  David Carr, The New York Times

“Sherman is at his best writing with sweep about the history of cable news and placing Ailes in context.”  Los Angeles Times

“[An] eye-opening biography of the would-be political kingmaker and Fox News mastermind . . . A well-reported, engaging book. A bonus: Bill O’Reilly won’t like it, either. Politics and media junkies, on the other hand, will have a field day.”  Kirkus Reviews
