'What's the Matter with Kansas' reviews, the MOVIE:

MOTHER JONES
"This eponymous documentary begins as a retelling of Frank's book but ends as a timely exploration of how an obsession with a narrow moral agenda can be self-defeating."

ROGER EBERT
"I've rarely seen a documentary quite like it. It has a point to make but no ax to grind..."What's the Matter with Kansas?" doesn't connect the dots, nor does it need to. It takes no cheap shots. It is all there to see. These good people are voting against themselves."

"What's the Matter with Kansas" reviews, the book:

Kirkus Reviews
"A fire and brimstone essay on the false consciousness on the Great Plains..."  

BOSTON GLOBE
"What's the Matter With Kansas?" is the must-read of this election season. Republican voters need to read it to better understand their party and their leaders. Democrats need to read it to better understand their opponents and their conundrum."

THE GUARDIAN
"Frank's brilliant analysis shows how conservatives appropriated the language of victimization from the left."
