Critical Praise

"Illuminating . . . provocative. . . . Krakauer is an adept chronicler of extremists [and] the tour guide of choice for secular quests."

——Los Angeles Times Book Review

"Powerfully illuminating. . . . Almost every section of the book is fascinating in its own right, and together the chapters make a rich picture. . . . An arresting portrait of depravity."

——The New York Times Book Review

"Well-researched and evenhanded. . . . Thought-provoking."

——USA Today
