NATIONAL BESTSELLER
ONE OF THE NEW YORK TIMES 10 BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR

Who are the immensely wealthy right-wing ideologues shaping the fate of America today? From the bestselling author of The Dark Side, an electrifying work of investigative journalism that uncovers the agenda of this powerful group.

In her new preface, Jane Mayer discusses the results of the most recent election and Donald Trump's victory, and how, despite much discussion to the contrary, this was a huge victory for the billionaires who have been pouring money in the American political system.

Why is America living in an age of profound and widening economic inequality? Why have even modest attempts to address climate change been defeated again and again? Why do hedge-fund billionaires pay a far lower tax rate than middle-class workers? In a riveting and indelible feat of reporting, Jane Mayer illuminates the history of an elite cadre of plutocrats—headed by the Kochs, the Scaifes, the Olins, and the Bradleys—who have bankrolled a systematic plan to fundamentally alter the American political system. Mayer traces a byzantine trail of billions of dollars spent by the network, revealing a staggering conglomeration of think tanks, academic institutions, media groups, courthouses, and government allies that have fallen under their sphere of influence. Drawing from hundreds of exclusive interviews, as well as extensive scrutiny of public records, private papers, and court proceedings, Mayer provides vivid portraits of the secretive figures behind the new American oligarchy and a searing look at the carefully concealed agendas steering the nation. Dark Money is an essential book for anyone who cares about the future of American democracy.

For thousands of years humanity has been told that grief is a necessary part of life, that deep sorrow over the passing of our loved ones is expected and a natural process. Brian Holmes says emphatically that, No, it is not! We can be sad when a friend or family member leaves us, but sad as if they are moving to another country, not disappearing from existence forever. You can, and ought to be emotionally stable and spiritually content after the death of a loved one. People sometimes spend months or years of their lives mired in crippling grief which sidetracks them from school, career, positive and healthy parenting, or other fruitful endeavors. Grief sabotages happy, productive lives. Sometimes people in extreme grief become angry, abuse drugs and alcohol, or even take their own lives. It doesn't have to be this way. Sadness when someone leaves our lives is normal. Intense grief need not be. If you are a Christian, Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist or Jew there is plenty of support for the afterlife in the holy books and teachings of your faith. All combined, these religions encompass the spiritual beliefs of most of the people on Earth. 

If you Believe, grief is not for you - emotional peace and happiness is. Defeat your grief now.
