There are two main people that are part of the network, David Koch and Charles Koch. The brothers inherited their father's wealth, who in turn built their huge fortune from oil refineries in both Hitler's Germany as well as Stalin's Russia. With their money, they gathered resources to create a major influence in various sectors like in the Congress, academic, court, think tanks, state houses and hopefully, the US Presidency.
Jane Mayer spent five years conducting hundreds of interviews - including with several sources within the network - and scoured public records, private papers, and court proceedings in reporting this book.
In a taut and utterly convincing narrative, she traces the byzantine trail of the billions of dollars spent by the network and provides vivid portraits of the colorful figures behind the new American oligarchy.
This summary is aimed for those who want to capture the gist of the book but don't have the time to listen to the whole thing.

Is no one paying attention?
Reader mispronounced 'Koch' throughout. It sounded like it was read by a high school student. I'm not inspired to listen to any of your other titles. I fear this lack of attention to detail might spill over into the actual content.

Secrets of the Libertarian Party
Excellent Concise summary about the team of players infiltrating Democracy by using greedy intentions, polluting the world, lying to their employees, by not maintaining safe work environments and deceiving all USA Citizens for their own personal gain. They should all be put in prison for tyranny and extremely unpatriotic behavior.
