Follow the Money is a harrowing, behind-the-scenes account of how a cabal of powerful, tightly connected Texas Republicans have quietly hijacked American politics for their own personal gain. It tells the story of how the Texas political system came to be hijacked by a sophisticated, well-funded group of conservative Republicans who, once they were able to elevate George W. Bush to the presidency, then went about applying their hardball, high-dollar politicking to Washington, D.C.

Publisher's Summary

Follow the Money is a harrowing, behind-the-scenes account of how a cabal of powerful, tightly connected Texas Republicans have quietly hijacked American politics for their own personal gain. It tells the story of how the Texas political system came to be hijacked by a sophisticated, well-funded group of conservative Republicans who, once they were able to elevate George W. Bush to the presidency, then went about applying their hardball, high-dollar politicking to Washington, D.C. This book tells who did it, how they did it, and what they did.

In Follow the Money, John Anderson explains what has happened in such diverse yet Texas-connected realms as tort reform, labor policy, energy policy, congressional redistricting schemes, Washington lobby practices, tax law changes, the Supreme Court, the Department of Justice, and many more issues and institutions that affect the future of this country.

What the Critics Say

"Quirky, engaging, and meticulously researched...a page turner that reads like a legal thriller." (The Baltimore Sun)
"Combining the curiosity of a journalist with the perspective of an historian, John Anderson brilliantly lays it all out for the reader, whose jaw will drop when seeing what - even today - passes for political leadership and representation of the people in our nation's capital." (Craig Unger, author of House of Bush and House of Saud)

    Overall
    "great insight of political warfare"

    This is a very interesting book. It goes into great detail of the financially funded political way of life on capitol hill. This detail also causes the reader (listener) to get buried at times. Perhaps too many names and associated dates are given for some of the examples. This would probably be easier to digest (or skim) in the written version, but the listener has no choice.
    Right-wing fundamentalists and evangelical Christian bible thumpers are most likely to howl in places; the narrator does emphasize certain passages with a bit of extra zeal.
    Overall, I was fascinated by how virtually all of the major and minor political desicions are directly influenced by possibilities of financial or power gains for our elected representatives.
    Truly amazing how massively powerful, wealthy, yet utterly corrupt our administration has become.
    People who like Ann Coulter should not read this book, but then those folks probably can't comprehend the written word anyway.
