I must start this off by saying that I usually don’t review (or even read) non-fiction. I don’t know why, but I much prefer residing in that land of fiction. So, to have read, and now review this book was a huge change for me, and also an uncomfortable one. There are few books that make me think, and make me as angry as this one did. I must say that even though I had to get up and leave the room on numerous occasions while reading, I’m so glad that I stuck with it to the end.
First of all, to have Mayer prove to be as truth the paranoid thoughts and feelings that I’ve been having for years, was surreal as well as a vindication. For her to have written this book made for an eye-opening experience. Her background, facts, proofs and all the rest has made me take a really hard look at where our country is going, and why it’s going there. I loved her tenacity in getting the truth written down for the rest of us.
The level of corruption that she detailed is breathtaking as is Mayer’s painstaking detailed reporting of it. How our political process has been overtaken by a small number of people intent on protecting their own bottom line is appalling. This is an important book for all voters to read before November. I highly recommend it.
