Here are comments from the cover pages of the book:

"A great book!" -- President Bill Clinton

"Supertrains ... would easily qualify for an all-category list of the most compelling books of the year" -- The New York Times Book Review

"He does not argue the task will be simple, only that it's essential. A 'must' read." -- Luther Miller, Railway Age magazine.

"This is an important book that will help spur the United States to catch up with the rest of the world in building the transport mode of the 21st century." -- Herb Field, The Patrior News

"Informative and inspiring..." -- John Holtzclaw, Sierra Club

"A respected public-relations man and lobbyist with experience in the railroad and aviation industries, Vranich has become one of the high priests of high speed." -- Kevin P. Keefe, Trains magazine

"This points the way for rail to become the dominant mode in the United States for short- and medium-distance corridor travel." -- Kevin McKinney, founder, Passenger Train Journal

"It was a super idea to promote the supertrains ... an important book on an important issue." -- Jurgen Weber, Chairman, Lufthansa Airlines
