Reviews

"THE MOST DANGEROUS MAN IN AMERICA is a wild ride across time, space, and multiple cosmic planes during an era when America came close to losing -- or finding? -- its mind. Leary and Nixon: surely no other country on earth could have produced such a perfectly, surreally antithetical pair. Crack open this book and prepare to have your mind blown by the reality of this very strange tale."--Ben Fountain, PEN/Hemingway and O. Henry Prize-winning author of Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk and Brief Encounters with Che Guevara: Stories
"The glory of [THE MOST DANGEROUS MAN IN AMERICA] is its fast-paced, rollicking narrative that brings the freakishness of the revolutionary 1970s to life. Bill Minutaglio and Steven L. Davis have pulled off a meticulous observation of their subjects with turns of phrases that pop with pleasure. I galloped through the book; could not put it down."--Jan Jarboe Russell, New York Times bestselling author of The Train to Crystal City
"Our intrepid authors, pounding the present tense like the brake pedal on a runaway 18-wheeler, narrate a story more wild, inventive, and sex-drenched than a Dennis Hopper movie."-- Glenn Frankel, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and author of High Noon: The Hollywood Blacklist and the Making of an American Classic
"A vivid, eye-opening alternate view of an especially bizarre period of American history...Far too strange to be fiction, the book brilliantly details an American tragedy of two men, each of whom considered the other to be the most dangerous man in America."-- James Fadiman, PhD., microdose researcher and author of The Psychedelic Explorers' Guide: Safe, Therapeutic, and Sacred Journeys
"A riveting international chase between a tenacious but paranoid cat and a wily but delusional mouse... Minutaglio and Davis are superb storytellers, and throughout the narrative, they nimbly move between their two converging subjects. Their account is expertly detailed and blessedly fat-free."--Kirkus (Starred Review)
"A pitch-perfect, exhilarating work about one of the strangest chapters in the American experience, one so exciting that even the postscript rivets...A stroke of narrative genius."--Booklist (Starred Review)
"Bill Minutaglio and Steven L. Davis weave a riveting tale that will keep readers on the edge of their seats."--Bookish
"A vivid evocation of a raucous time in recent American history."--Shelf Awareness
"One of the decade's most audacious and exciting stories, told with page-turning panache."--The Boston Globe
"Can you dig it? In their wild new book, authors Bill Minutaglio and Steven L. Davis...have crafted a hopped-up, sometimes risibly over-the-top narrative that...delivers an outlandish concoction of twists, turns and international intrigue."--Newsday
"Fascinating...rigorously researched...[THE MOST DANGEROUS MAN IN AMERICA] offers the pleasures of the tick-tock genre. Much like Leary himself, the book is plenty of zany fun."--The New York Times
"It's a rollicking tale that brings to life the antic atmosphere of America in the 'Me Decade.'"--Wall Street Journal

"A deeply researched, entertaining, and informative look at the symbolically joined paths Nixon and one of his nemeses, LSD guru Timothy Leary, followed in the early 1970s, the era that would ultimately be defined by Watergate."--St. Louis Post-Dispatch
"...[A] rip-roaring tale of hallucinogenic drugs, revolutionary politics and an intercontinental standoff...Minutaglio and Davis have taken a largely forgotten chapter from the recent past and turned it into a vigorous page-turner."--San Francisco Chronicle
