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.

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.

Worst preformed and engineered audio book ever

Would you try another book from Malcolm Nance and/or Gregory Itzin?

Malcolm Nance content is great. Very informative. I will never by another book read by Mr Itzin. His inflections and dynamics are extremely repetitive and are not in any away connected to the material and after about 30 min become so annoying that you just have to turn it off. This coupled with the poor engineering of the recording make this the worst book I have ever tried to listen to.

What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

Great content, very detailed and informative.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Gregory Itzin?

ANYONE. My kid could do a better job reading this book

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Very disappointed because I just can't listen to it after 15-20 min. The repetitive unwarranted dynamics and lack of audio compression to at least try to smooth out the audio level spikes at the beginning of almost EVERY sentence actually starts to hurt your ears after a time.

Any additional comments?

While, as mentioned I was very unhappy with the narrators repetitive "style", the resulting wide swings in dynamics could have been made tolerable with some properly applied vocal compression. The beginning of every sentence hits your ears like a freight train and then trails off to almost a whisper at the end of most sentences.

Everyone who believes in liberal democracy must read this book. Persuasive detail is provided regarding well known and not so well known cyber support by the Russians for Trump. Observations about timing also insightful.
