“More than a rehash of yesteryear’s bureaucratic battles, and more even than delicious inside gossip, Adams paints a fascinating and personalized picture of the backroom, political wartime CIA.” – Library Journal

“A stunning account by a man of impeccable integrity, of the corruption of U.S. military intelligence in Vietnam.” – Mike Wallace

“If someone were to ask me what three books they should read to understand what happened in Vietnam, I would say: Street Without Joy, by Bernard Fall; Honorable Men, by William Colby; and War of Numbers by Sam Adams. . . . There are probaboly 5,000 books on Vietnam. War of Numbers will become a classic.” — Lt. Col. H. Thomas Hayden, The Marine Corps Gazette

“As spellbinding as a mystery story — which of course it is.” — The Boston Globe

One of “the most important books of the Vietnam War — Adams has had the last word, in permanent defiance of those who would re-write the war to doublethink specifications.” — The Chicago Tribune
