Praise

praise for James Traub’s previous works:

City on a Hill

“An excellent if sorrowful study of what City College has become
since open admissions…informed, sympathetic, a heartbreaking picture
of New York today.”
Alfred Kazin, The New York Observer

“This is a deeply reported, lucidly written and clearly thought-out book—a book
of merit.”
A. M. Rosenthal, The New York Times Book Review

Too Good to Be True: The
Outlandish Story of Wedtech


“Traub…brings a novelist’s sensibility to the vastly complex story; his characters
are so alive and the narrative so vivid that you feel like washing your hands
every time you put the book down.”
John Schwartz, Newsweek
