The most detailed biography of Dean to date. * Kirkus *
Straightforward and unsentimental, Rebel is perceptive and original. It has the ring of truth. * The Washington Post *
Scrupulously fair....Rebel restores a balance to the negative portrayals of Dean that have appreared over the years. * The New York Times *
A well-written, superbly researched biography that brings to the fog that has enveloped the Dean mystique. * The Boston Globe *
