Críticas:

"I would heartily recommend it. I don't think anybody could go buy a book written by anybody who has been more intimately involved, closer to power, for as many years, has been through as much, has known all of the power players as you have. It is amazing." -Rush Limbaugh (interview transcript)/2/8/2001 "Readers might be appreciative to find themselves in possession of a serious memoir, more in keeping with the older Washington tradition of Dean Acheson or Henry Kissinger. As might the historians." -Kimberly Strassel/Wall Street Journal/2/8/2011 "The battle is joined. After a long silence, Donald Rumsfeld opened both barrels Tuesday, releasing his memoir, Known and Unknown . Early leaks of the book's defiant take on his life, times, and conduct of the Iraq War drew howls from some of the targets of his score-settling...But Rumsfeld battles on, taking his unapologetic account to the public." -John Barry/Newsweek-The Daily Beast/2/8/2011 "The book places the reader in Rumsfeld's chair and is a serious stab at telling the history of a consequential period in America through the eyes of one of its most consequential players. It will be an important addition to the history of our time." -Peter Baker (New York Times White House correspondent)/Foreign Policy/2/9/2011 Rumsfeld "describes the highs and lows of a long and dramatic career and discloses some behind the scenes details that may shock you." -Sean Hannity (interview transcript)/2/9/2011 "Known and Unknown is a meaty, well-written book that will be a primary source for historians...this power memoir deserves to be read with the care that went into writing it." -Christopher Buckley/Businessweek/2/10/2011 "'Dismissive' is a word often used to describe Rumsfeld, but 'dismissive' perfectly describes his critics, who are unwilling or unable to re-examine their own assumptions in the light of new or overlooked information and fresh perspective provided by Rumsfeld, in his exceedingly well-documented work. With its hundreds of annotations and supplementary documents, Known and Unknown is a significant contribution to the historical record. It is, as Rumsfeld once noted about similar memoirs, 'only from one perspective, ' but it's a unique and valuable perspective, a serious work that deserves consideration by any serious student of recent history." -Jamie McIntyre (former CNN Pentagon correspondent)/Line of Departure/2/10/2011 "It is a terrific book...Let me tell you something, it is absolutely fascinating. He's very blunt in talking about people and issues and so forth, you'll really enjoy it, in my humble opinion." -Mark Levin (interview transcript)/2/10/2011 "I would heartily recommend it. I don''t think anybody could go buy a book written by anybody who has been more intimately involved, closer to power, for as many years, has been through as much, has known all of the power players as you have.

I've read it through the first time, and now I'm using it like a reference book for history." -Greta van Susteren, Fox News, March 23, 2011 "Don Rumsfeld creates an entertaining masterpiece...In short, this work cannot be recommended too highly. It is a unique portrait of a half-century of American Government from the inside out." -Stephen Laib, "The Intellectual Conservative," March 8, 2011 "An insider's view." -Walter Pincus, "The Washington Post," March 1, 2011 "Those who believe in what I would call the accepted Iraq narrative...will either have to produce commensurate written texts that substantiate these assertions or prove that Rumsfeld's amp
