"Arnie is a magician. He turns anecdotes into spellbinding tales. He tilts his head and taps into slices of history to events which occurred long before he was born, and paints a vivid picture of what it was like to be in a studio with Walter Winchell or an auditorium with Fritz Kuhn. Arnie can pivot like a great shortstop starting a double play, from discussing the American Bund to American culture to the craft of writing."

"Arnie Bernstein's balanced perspective on a wide range of topics is refreshing and knowledgeable, equal parts historian and commentator."
