From Jeff Cohen:

Dear Friend,

We can make a best-seller out of David Swanson’s powerful book, “WAR IS A LIE.” It’s a great holiday gift.

Publication date is this Monday (Nov. 22). If we all buy a copy (or copies) on on Monday, this book could rise to the top like David’s previous book, “Daybreak,” which reached #1 on Amazon/nonfiction.

Getting to the top of Amazon motivates bookstores to order copies — and helps word of mouth. Need more motivation? If we succeed, we’ll be knocking a Glenn Beck book out of the #1 slot in nonfiction/politics.

David is a brave peace advocate, intrepid researcher (and friend). You will learn a new fact about U.S. history and the history of war on every page. More info on the book (and bulk purchasing) is at

Want to get your book through your local indy bookstore? That’s fine too.

WAR IS A LIE thoroughly refutes every major argument used to justify wars — with a focus on those wars that have been most widely defended as just. You may not agree with every argument in the book, but you’ll sure be ready to debunk future lies and war-mongering like the soon-to-be-intensified threats against Iran. — jc

Message from Mark: "I am a one-man operation, although assisted greatly by some volunteers, and, now and then, by people paid by others for one-time projects. There is no shortage of skilled, dedicated folks out there who want to help me. There is, however, nothing I can pay them with, unless you decide you can contribute something."
