Have a massive fortune, political vision, and no idea how to pull the two together? Jane Mayer’s Dark Money may be the summer read for you. A staff writer for The New Yorker, Mayer spent five years chronicling the lives and influence of the conservative billionaire philanthropists who’ve tried to shape American politics in the last few decades, including the elusive brothers Charles and David Koch. Dark Money’s crowning achievement is its balance between sweeping scope and intricate detail. It’s well worth the time of anyone interested by the world of campaign finance.
