Reviews

Praise for Jane Mayer's Dark Money

"Revelatory. . . . Persuasive, timely and necessary." --The New York Times

"Dark Money is more than just a work of political journalism--it's a vital portrait of a nation that, as perhaps never before, is being shaped by a few very rich, very conservative businessmen." --San Francisco Chronicle

"Absolutely necessary reading for anyone who wants to make sense of our politics." --The New York Review of Books

"Deeply researched and studded with detail . . . Seems destined to rattle the Koch executive offices in Wichita as other investigations have not." --Washington Post

"With such turmoil on the right wing of American politics, reading Dark Money is like reading the first chapter of what may be a great political page-turner."
--Chicago Tribune

"Jane Mayer . . . is, quite simply, one of the very few utterly invaluable journalists this country has." --Esquire

"Amazing. . . . The most important political book of the year."
--St. Louis Post-Dispatch

"Dark Money is almost too good for its own good." --Los Angeles Review of Books

"[A] comprehensive history. . . . Stunning."
--Salon
