Inhaltsangabe

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.

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.

What a brave, courageous and upright man

Makes me hoping for the future of my grandchildren's world. The book is brilliantly written and although I certainly cannot recall the full meaning of abbreviations e.g. of all government departments, which each time were explained, I got the picture and the message. Thank you.

Tantalizing story and very well read

Fascinating story with many new details, at least to me. Usually I look for books read by the author himself, but this speaker also does an extremely good job of bringing a “Snowden” type of energy across. Fully recommend!
