My new book Conspiracy: Peter Thiel, Hulk Hogan, Gawker, and the Anatomy of Intrigue is out now!

The book is my most ambitious work yet. The New York Times called Conspiracy a “profound masterwork,” and the Washington Post marvelled at it as “a genuinely startling proposition.”

To celebrate its release, I want to give you the chance to go behind the scenes.

I’m giving away EVERY book I listed in the bibliography. That’s 59 of the best books on power, strategy, and conspiracy that YOU could win.

This giveaway is free to enter.

And don’t forget to check out my new book Conspiracy. Here’s the very first paragraph from the book...

“This is the story of a conspiracy, the story of a billionaire who set out to make an example of millionaire, to destroy the man’s life’s work in response to a cruel transgression made as thoughtlessly as it was quickly forgotten. It is a story of poetic justice on a grand scale, plotted silently for nearly a decade. It is also a book about that controversial word and method—conspiracy—which has long terrified and intrigued.”
