That means we must dispose of these books – and I’m asking your help so the books don’t have to be destroyed. I’d much prefer that these wonderful books get distributed to the public even if at a very steep loss.

So, we are offering an entire box of 28 paperback copies of Neck Deep for only $59, postage included for U.S. orders. That means for the cost of less than three books, you will get 25 books free. (Or you can request that we substitute a box of 24 hardcover copies.)

You can then resell the books, or give them away as gifts, or contribute them to your local library’s book sale. Our overriding goal is to make the books available to readers who can benefit from the valuable investigative journalism that fills Neck Deep.

Neck Deep tells the remarkable story of how the Bush Family reclaimed the highest office in the land with the help of the Right’s powerful propaganda machinery, the systemic failure of the mainstream U.S. news media, and the coup d’etat of Republican political cronies on the U.S. Supreme Court handing George W. Bush the White House.

Neck Deep then explains how Bush abused the extraordinary powers that he had wrongfully seized. It is a crucial narrative that Americans must understand if such a catastrophe is not to be repeated.

And, on a personal level, please spare me the pain of having to destroy these books that I wrote with two of my sons, Sam and Nat.
