In a tour de force of investigative journalism that reads like a spy novel, award-winning Guardian reporter Luke Harding tells Edward Snowden’s astonishing story

Edward Snowden was a 29-year-old computer genius working for the National Security Agency when he shocked the world by exposing the near-universal mass surveillance programs of the United States government. His whistleblowing has shaken the leaders of nations worldwide, and generated a passionate public debate on the dangers of global monitoring and the threat to individual privacy.
For the first time, Harding brings together the many sources and strands of the story, from the day Snowden left his glamorous girlfriend in Honolulu carrying a hard drive full of secrets, to the weeks of his secret-spilling in Hong Kong, to his battle for asylum and his exile in Moscow. Harding touches on everything from concerns about domestic spying to the complicity of the tech sector—while also placing us in the room with Edward Snowden himself.

The result is a gripping insider narrative—and a necessary and timely account of what is at stake for all of us in the new digital age.

Good read. Snowden is a heroic whistle-blower yet, a system villain.

An eye opening account of Snowden's actions and motives before, during and after he revealed to the world the U.S. government's gathering of personal information on its own citizens without any probable cause to do so.
