Publisher's Summary

In April 2016, computer technicians at the Democratic National Committee discovered that someone had accessed the organization's computer servers and conducted a theft that is best described as Watergate 2.0. In the weeks that followed, the nation's top computer security experts discovered that the cyber thieves had helped themselves to everything: sensitive documents, emails, donor information, even voice mails.
Soon after, the remainder of the Democratic Party machine, the congressional campaign, the Clinton campaign, and their friends and allies in the media were also hacked. Credit card numbers, phone numbers, and contacts were stolen. In short order, the FBI found that more than 25 state election offices had their voter registration systems probed or attacked by the same hackers.
Western intelligence agencies tracked the hack to Russian spy agencies and dubbed them the Cyber Bears. The media was soon flooded with the stolen information channeled through Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks. It was a massive attack on America but the Russian hacks appeared to have a singular goal - elect Donald J. Trump as president of the United States.
New York Times best-selling author and career intelligence officer Malcolm Nance's fast paced real-life spy thriller takes you from Vladimir Putin's rise through the KGB from junior officer to spymaster-in-chief and spells out the story of how he performed the ultimate political manipulation - convincing Donald Trump to abandon 70 years of American foreign policy including the destruction of NATO, cheering the end of the European Union, allowing Russian domination of Eastern Europe, and destroying the existing global order with America at its lead.
The Plot to Hack America is the thrilling true story of how Putin's spy agency, run by the Russian billionaire class, used the promise of power and influence to cultivate Trump as well as his closest aides, the Kremlin Crew, to become unwitting assets of the Russian government. The goal? To put an end to 240 years of free and fair American democratic elections.

Interesting

I had to keep reminding myself that this book was written before the election. The actions of the current administration fall right in line with a entity that's being manipulated. However I wonder how much could an outside enemy get away with without the willingness of insiders.

Essential info, but sound mixing/narration rough

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

This book is essential reading for every American; definitely highly recommend. It's not as smooth a listen as I'd like, not always effortless to follow along. Also, the narration varies in modulation so much that I often had to turn it way up to hear it, and then I'd get my ear blown out by the narrator suddenly seeming to yell.

Would you be willing to try another one of Gregory Itzin’s performances?

Not unless the sample indicated that it was better modulated. Listening from my mobile through an aux cord over my radio, I was often adjusting the volume. Itzin tends to trail off quietly and then begin another sentence yelling, which is often startling and painful on the ear. Aside from that, the performance is good.

Do you think The Plot to Hack America needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Absolutely, let's talk about collusion!
