Kick-Ass, Mind-blowing

“Greg Palast’s Vultures’ Picnic is an eye-opening, heart-pumping, mind-blowing experience that should not, MUST not, be missed.”

– Nomi Prins, author Other People’s Money

We are just a few books short of bumping Bill O’Reilly on the New York Times list. Get it now, this weekend.
We don’t have the Koch-suckers’ ad budget. What we have is an answer to the most important question in America:
“Why do we occupy?”
According to Prins….
“Vultures’ Picnic answers that question in dramatic detail and biting whodunit monologue and dialogue, the kind that could easily fill a riveting Mission Impossible film where Tom Cruise ricochets into the lairs of the bad guys to save the world from the big bad oil company. Yet all of Palast’s and his team’s findings are shockingly true and infinitely more visceral.” [Read the complete review here.]

[Catch Palast on tour in Chicago, Madison, New Mexico, New York, DC and beyond.]
We’ve had over 100 reviews stating, no exception, this book is Palast’s best.  Well, there’s one exception:  Mitt Romney’s billionaire funder Paul “The Vulture” Singer’s public relations flack says, “Your book is chock full of errors.”  Really?  In your dreams, Singer.
Op-Ed News:
Kick-Ass! What Palast does to investigate is un effing believable — going in canoes paddled by indigenous locals up the Amazon? Eating whale meat while inside the carcass of a whale?  If you like thrillers, why read fake stuff when the real stories Palast tells are even more amazing, way out and riveting? And the results of the stories are muckraking and exposés that will knock your socks off.”
If you get Vultures’ Picnic this week, we will send you our thanks:  a private link to every one of the 15 film shorts you’d have to pay extra for in the “enhanced” editions.  Request it here.
