  • Not only a must-read for anyone wanting to understand Trump’s America but also a laugh-out-loud undiluted pleasure

    Will Storr, author of Selfie
  • This is an important book - the indispensable book - for understanding America in the age of Trump. It’s an eye-opening history filled with brilliant insights, a saga of how we were always susceptible to fantasy, from the Puritan fanatics to the talk-radio and Internet wackos who mix show business, hucksterism, and conspiracy theories.

    Walter Isaacson, author of Steve Jobs
  • Fantasyland presents the very best kind of idea – one that, in retrospect, seems obvious, but which took a seer like Kurt Andersen to piece together. The thinking and the writing are both dazzling; it is at once a history lesson and an oh-so-modern cri de coeur; it’s an absolute joy to read, and will leave your brain dancing with excitement long after you’re done

    Stephen Dubner, co-author of Freakonomics
  • An absorbing, must-read polemic.

  • The most important book that I have read this year.
