About the book:

“The idea of power—of influence, of control, of bending an arc toward your will—is fascinating. And Amos Barshad drops you into a discussion of it here, in both of its forms, good and bad (mostly bad), with an almost offensive ease. And being able to do that is its own form of power, really; an irony that does not appear lost on Barshad. Buy this book.”
— Shea Serrano

No One Man Should Have All That Power is not really the examination of a specific person. It’s an examination of a specific type of person, and ultimately the dissection of how a specific type of person can warp the world to his advantage, often for motives that only become clear in retrospect. This is mostly a book about shadow manipulation. But it’s also a book about how certain conspiracies are real, simply because they aren’t conspiracies at all.”
— Chuck Klosterman
