It's like a follow up to Greg's first big book The Best Democracy Money Can Buy. Must read for those who want to know the inside info on the money in politics - the book may be cute and small and have a comic book inside - but has real dirt on the billionaires that are actively trying to make sure that they're money counts more than your vote.

And a must read!! I can't remember the last time I read a book that made me so sick to my stomach, and I've read some pretty horrible crime thrillers. But the real threat to our democracy that Palast has documented in Billionaires and Bandits SHOULD make us feel sick. His work is meticulously documented, but written in a very accessible way. The included comic book by Ted Rall is a good visual counterpart to Palast's passionate, purple, prose. Again, this is a must read for anyone who is concerned about saving our most basic right as citizens--the right to vote and to have our votes counted. Get this book!! And register to vote. And vote in person!!!

This is so scary and so factual that I will not let my wife read it! Palasr may be our last great muck raker. Unlike the rich and powerful and slimy that he investigates, I say to him and his staff: "Keep it up. God bless you."
