ROBERT PHILPOT

"In a 2013 interview, Krauthammer quoted approvingly the words of Tom Stoppard: 'You put words together all your life and every once in a while you get them in the right order and give the world a nudge'. As this collection demonstrates, the world is poorer without Charles Krauthammer’s gentle but eloquent nudging.

"[Krauthammer] was…like a trusted counselor, the man to whom you went in the hope of making sense of an increasingly crazy world…. He left us just as we stand in greatest need of commentators like him."

JAY NORDLINGER

"The Point of It All is very wide-ranging, a true Krauthammer sampler.... When I started reading, I couldn’t put the book down.... It was wonderful to be in the author’s company again. And I thought, 'Yes. This is what I believe.' ...This makes me all the more grateful for, and delighted with, The Point of It All. It is... a permanent, portable Charles. In addition to being a stellar book, it is a great service."

WALTER RUSSELL MEAD

"To read (or reread) [his columns] is to be reminded of how central the elder Krauthammer was to 30 years of American foreign policy debate."

JAY CARUSO

"Whether it was politics, sports, religion, or even chess, Krauthammer had a gift for maintaining simplicity with his writing that, while light on polemic, was heavy on argumentation, forcing readers to think about what he was saying. …Charles Krauthammer is no longer with us, but his legacy will continue to live on."

JACKSON RICHMAN

"His [columns] exemplify his stalwart support for the Jewish state, in addition to his eloquent observations of the Jewish community—past, present and future."

ANDREW FERGUSON

"Krauthammer’s stuff was always worth reading, and often repaid rereading. …His plain style was without affect, easily accessible, and often slyly funny."

GUY BENSON

"The Point of It All is to be devoured and cherished…. Daniel's splendid introduction, the inclusion of his beautiful and moving eulogy from his father's funeral, and a prescient, lengthy essay penned by the great man himself, entitled 'The Authoritarian Temptation,' make The Point of It All essential reading."

FRANCIS P. SEPMA

"Every Krauthammer column is a joy to read—whether you agree or disagree with his particular position on a specific political issue or personality—because he combined graceful writing, compelling logic, brilliant argument, and well-reasoned and thought-provoking analysis."
