The New Statesman's (U.K.) friends and contributors choose their favorite books of 2013. “Goodale is a passionate defender of First Amendment rights and his insider account of this crucial struggle is surprisingly racy – and extremely important.” 12 BEST NON-FICTION OF 2013
THURSDAY REVIEW by Alan Clanton, Editor, December 31, 2013 “Goodale retells the most important freedom-of-the press case in U.S. history. . . he also foretells of a pendulum in full swing again, this time away from the press and in favor of a government that wants to operate in secret – and to collect your secrets with unlimited power. A very fast read.”
THE NEW YORK REVIEW OF BOOKS By David Cole, Feb. 6, 2013 "The Three Leakers and What to Do About Them" “A fascinating inside story of the Times legal battles against censorship . . . The Pentagon Papers case, thanks in part to Goodale’s own arguments before the courts, established an extraordinarily high legal bar for enjoining publication, and that bar holds today.”
by Mark Feldstein, University of Maryland, Dec 3, 2014 "[Goodale's] unvarnished if immodest depiction of backbiting and double-dealing makes fascinating reading, and it will appeal to journalists, scholars, and media lawyers and serve as an excellent supplement to a graduate-level media law textbook."
