"A stirring picture of a remarkable time at the University of Chicago and of a remarkable man." - Chicago Sun-Times "[McNeill] provides a view of the Hutchins years which is respectful and sober. The academic environment was divisive, the educational milieu was hot-house." - London Review of Books"
