Reviews

"Thompson s writing packs a high percentage of insights per page and his book manages to be an exemplary investigation, a history, an autopsy, a practical manual, and a cautionary tale all at once." --Publishers Weekly (starred review)"A pointed expose...a la George Orwell." --Kirkus Reviews"Ranging masterfully from Aristotle and Pericles to the age of Trump and Twitter, Mark Thompson makes the case for political rhetoric as a democratic art. This vividly written, trenchant book is a much-needed antidote to the miasma of spin, incivility, and 'truthiness' that afflicts politics today." --Michael Sandel, "New York Times" bestselling author of "Justice" and "What Money Can't Buy""

It is thoughtful, nuanced and wise; it considers opposing views; it takes ample note of history and is unafraid of complexity. To read this book is to feel there is cause, however tenuous, for hope. The Washington Post The public language of our dumbed-down democracy is brilliantly analyzed by Mark Thompson. Enough Said is such a lacerating and entertaining expose of the Untruth Society, the prolixity of hateful, mad, duplicitous words, it is surprising and bracing that he is able to identify the moral sources of a simmering counter-revolution. Harold Evans, author of The American Century"[An] important book...elegantly argued." --The Guardian"
