In my lifetime I've read/listened to hundreds of books and not even one, including legendary works such as Adam Smith's Wealth of Nations, came close to the superior quality of this presentation in terms of articulation & presenting a very complex subject into the easily understandable logic.
It's as if the author served filet minion in every sentence including only the most succulent meaningful richness of intellectual information & logic all presented beautifully in chronological order so that the evolution of cyber-technology built upon itself in an orderly flow of rich content.
The highlights for myself:
1. Rare, once classified information of the NSA, GCHQ, Five Eyes, etc. that give light to the mechanics of international intelligence gathering.
2. Beautiful Chronological order of the information took the reader on a journey through time
3. Articulation; the author has a rare natural talent at organizing & presenting information highlighting intuitive thoughtfulness in regards to all the evidence before us. There seems not a wasted word, every sentence was there for an important piece of the overall intellectual infrastructure.
If any reason to listen again to this presentation it is this rare, unique gift the author demonstrates at articulating subject matter into digestible, meaningful, orderly content that gives sense a thorough completeness backed by rich sources. A once in a lifetime read, it wouldn't surprise me to see this book spoken about for the next 100 years.

Living just south of a huge data center, I've been curious about the complicated issues of security vs. liberty. This book did a good job keeping a neutral tone, laying out relevant facts with well documented first-hand accounts. I also enjoyed the uniquely British perspective of the author, though the text was very accessible for readers of any nationality.
