    Michiko Kakutani, New York Times
  • "Wolffe's technique is to combine biography and reportage, to take milestones along the campaign trail and use them as portals into the character and make-up of the man behind the candidate ... An insider's tour of the travelling circus/endurance test that is the 21st-century American presidential race"

  • "Obama gave [Wolffe] exclusive interviews and invited him into his inner circle to play basketball. The result, Renegade - Obama's secret service codename - is peppered with interviews with Obama's best friends and political accomplices, who were equally eager to help"

    The Sunday Times
  • "A fly's-eye view of one of the most thrilling political insurgencies in modern American history"

  • "The first of the President Obama books--and a good one--insightful, thorough and straight"

    Ben Bradlee, vice president at large of The Washington Post
