Summary of Dark Money by Jane Mayer | Includes Analysis

Dark Money by Jane Mayer profiles the wealthy donors who have funded and established organizations to promote libertarian ideals, particularly the brothers Charles and David Koch. They and their two other brothers were raised by parents who promoted free-market capitalism and were suspicious of anything related or sympathetic to Communism.

    "It's Koch, like Coke - not cotch!!!"

    The constant mispronunciation of "Koch" marred an otherwise good summary. That is a HUGE oversight!

    "Disappointed"

    I would have preferred a little more detail and analysis then was provided. I was also disappointed that the Koch brother's name was mispronounced. I felt that if trying to present yourself as knowledgeable on the subject that the name would be pronounced correctly.

    "Can't pronounce "Koch""

    The narrator mispronounces name "Koch" throughout, but otherwise was fine. The summary itself was informative.

    "Need to pronounce Koch Brothers correctly."

    When putting together this piece the production should have pronounced "The Koch Brothers" correctly. Question now, what other mistakes were in the research?

    "Poor Summary of Book"
    Has Summary of Dark Money by Jane Mayer | Includes Analysis turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, this has turned me off to Instaread.


    What didn’t you like about Michael Pauley’s performance?

    Can't even pronounce the Koch's name properly. Really, they are the central characters.

    "Do not spend one penny on this."

    This summary is useless. The whole book is about the Koch brothers and the machine reading this mispronounces Koch every single time. I am planning to try to get my money back.

    "Is there no editor?"

    Reader mispronounced 'Koch' throughout. A fail on this count doesn't inspire much confidence in your attention to detail, possibly spilling over into content.

    "Too brief to adequately cover the rich material in Mayer’s book"

    If this summary had gone into more detail, I️ would have found it helpful. It needed to be about 2-3 times longer to give a more nuanced feel to Mayer’s book. I️ read most of the book for my book club, got short on time, and switched to the summary to finish the book in time for my meeting. Mayer’s writing is quite dense, but the summary is not informative enough. Read the actual book if you can!

    "Good read, but needs more footnotes"

    Very good read but needs more cites to substantial confirm it "facts". I recommend it.
