An indictment of the Bush-led radical Right's disdain for the principles of reasoned decision-making, and a reckoning with the degradation of the public sphere that facilitates their rule of unreason.

The New York Times - Michiko Kakutani

… for all its sharply voiced opinions, The Assault on Reason turns out to be less a partisan, election-cycle harangue than a fiercely argued brief about the current Bush White House that is grounded in copiously footnoted citations from newspaper articles, Congressional testimony and commission reports a brief that is as powerful in making its points about the implications of this administration s policies as the author s 2006 book, An Inconvenient Truth, was in making its points about the fallout of global warming.
