Reviews

'Utterly brilliant and chilling - no matter how much you think you already know ... Read it!'

* Naomi Klein author of This Changes Everything *

'Political journalism at its best, an epic and terrifying story that grips the reader like a Stephen King thriller.'

-- A.M. Homes * The Observer *

'Indispensable.'

* The Guardian *

'Persuasive, timely and necessary.'

* The New York Times *

'A terrifying insight into how 21st-century politics works.'

-- George Monbiot * The Guardian *
'A chilling book' * Times Higher Education *

'A triumph ... Mayer has cut through the secrecy that these men have carefully cultivated ... and given the world a full accounting of what had been a shadowy and largely unseen force.'

* New York Review of Books *

'Packed with revelations.'

* San Francisco Chronicle *

'A must-read for those seeking to understand how Washington became a corporatocracy.'

* New Internationalist *

'Meticulously researched and elegantly written.'

-- John Keane * Sydney Morning Herald *
The New York Times 'The 10 Best Books of 2016'
The New York Times '100 Notable Books of 2016'
NPR's 'Best Books of 2016'

'Meticulously, fascinatingly and horrifyingly explains how eccentric American billionaires hijaced our democracy.'

-- Curtis Sittenfeld * The Observer *

'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 *

'Dark Money is almost too good for its own good ... [t]he story is so outrageous it should make any citizen want to go out and do something about it.'

* Los Angeles Review of Books *

'[A] comprehensive history ... Stunning.'

* Salon *

'Mayer is ... a writer whose reporting can leave a reader breathless ... I urge you to read Dark Money.'

* Bill Moyers *

'[A]n extraordinarily well-documented account of the influential, interlocking organisations with innocuous names created by the Koch brothers.'

* The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette *

'The importance of Dark Money does not flow from any explosive new revelation, but from its scope and perspective ... It is not easy to uncover the inner workings of an essentially secretive political establishment. Mayer has come as close to doing it as anyone is likely to come anytime soon.'

-- Alan Ehrenhalt * The New York Times Book Review *

'Dark Money piles up facts and anecdotes to support its central thesis: the evasion by the very rich of any obligation to rise above self-interest and serve the public interest ... The billionaires do all the mischief they can, and Jane Mayer, in this brave and resourceful book, has numbered their abuses with admirable pertinacity.'

-- David Bromwich * The Nation *

'Mayer is one of the nation's best investigative journalists, and she is writing in the muckraking tradition of Ida Tarbell. Readers who believe that money and politics make for a toxic brew will share Mayer's anger, which animates every page of Dark Money.' * Washington Independent Review of Books *
