"Movingly personal…intriguing and timely…only sometimes does a notable life yield a worthy memoir, and this is such an instance….Stranger Among Friends is an optimist’s book, the achievement of a doer."
–Los Angeles Times
"Rarely have one man’s personal journey and a nation’s political odyssey blended as powerfully….Simply one of the best political autobiographies of the year."
–Book-of-the-Month Club Views
"Impassioned….Poignantly told…[a] bittersweet political odyssey."
–Frank Rich, Op-Ed Page, The New York Times
"An intelligent and challenging biography of contemporary America…an epic that is partly David Mixner and partly his times, and future historians will be hard pressed to understand us without reading him."
–The New York Times Book Review
