An NPR Best Book of the Year - 2019

Edward Snowden, the man who risked everything to expose the US government’s system of mass surveillance, reveals for the first time the story of his life, including how he helped to build that system and what motivated him to try to bring it down.

In 2013, 29-year-old Edward Snowden shocked the world when he broke with the American intelligence establishment and revealed that the United States government was secretly pursuing the means to collect every single phone call, text message, and email. The result would be an unprecedented system of mass surveillance with the ability to pry into the private lives of every person on earth. Six years later, Snowden reveals for the very first time how he helped to build this system and why he was moved to expose it. 

Spanning the bucolic Beltway suburbs of his childhood and the clandestine CIA and NSA postings of his adulthood, Permanent Record is the extraordinary account of a bright young man who grew up online - a man who became a spy, a whistleblower, and, in exile, the internet’s conscience. Written with wit, grace, passion, and an unflinching candor, Permanent Record is a crucial memoir of our digital age and destined to be a classic.

Insgesamt Klasse!

Kindheit- und Jugendphase fand ich etwas ausführlich. Ich bin jedoch drangeblieben und habe es nicht bereut. Wem es anfangs etwas langweilig ist empfehle ich, einfach das entsprechende Kapital zu überspringen.

Amazing story. Tough to listen to the speaker.

The story is very well written. Gives great insights ti the man Edward snowden.. My hat is off to him and his courage. I found the speaker exhausting... Most of the time he emphasized every word and made it hard to listen to. Wish i would have bought the German version (heard a sample of it and the speaker is much better.

Intelligent, self reflective and emotional

The book doesn't give many new insights on the mass surveillance performed by the U.S. government, but instead shows us the person behind the "leaks" (including a short, entertaining deviation pondering the negatively flavoured naval terms used for this kind of actions).

This intelligent, self reflective and emotional description of his way from a struggling teenage computer nerd to one of the most wanted enemies of the government, just because actually believing in the ideals of the Constitution of the United States and consequently following them, is a recommended read for anyone advocating the "Nothing to hide argument".

Narration: Perfect reading by Holter Graham!

touching!

A very touching story about the human being behind the name of Edward Snowden. Well written, well performed this book tells about the development and coming to be of Edward Snowden due to the technological advances during his childhood and beyond and how he perceived those in technical, emotional and ethical regards.
This book leads the listener/reader through the timeline;-) from his youth followed by the several governmental and non-governmental employments and ending in his decisionmaking the following through of his disclosures and the consequences thereof.
Thank you.
