Reviews

  • One of America's greatest investigative reporters.

    New York Times Magazine
  • In a city and culture where screeching talk shows and preening columnists have largely supplanted old-fashioned shoe-leather reporting, and most 'investigative reporting' consists of the collection of carefully dispensed leaks, Hersh stands virtually alone.

    Rupert Cornwell, The Independent
  • The most feared investigative reporter in Washington.

    Guardian
  • If there is a smoking gun lying around the White House, the reporter most likely to find it is Seymour M. Hersh.

    Scott Sherman, Columbia Journalism Review
  • A whip-smart, preternaturally energetic outsider who . . . assembled a body of work that helps to radically revise the way Americans see their government.

    Bob Thomson, The Washington Post
  • A groundbreaking journalist who has revealed some of America's darkest secrets.

    David Jackson, The Chicago Tribune
  • The last great American reporter.

    Financial Times
  • Hersh's exposés of gross abuses by members of the US military in Vietnam and Iraq have earned him worldwide fame and high journalistic honors.

    Foreign Policy
  • Quite simply, the greatest investigative journalist of his era.

    David Remnick, Editor-in-Chief, New Yorker
  • Hersh is necessary reading for anyone remotely interested in what went wrong and continues to go wrong in Iraq
