I have just finished reading Permanent Record by Edward Snowden. Wow.
Written with wit, grace, passion and unflinching candour, Mr Snowden has written a crucial memoir for our digital age. In this book, Snowden reveals how he helped build a mass surveillance system and why he was so profoundly moved to expose it.

Permanent Record helps to explain the techincal details involved with end to end file sharing, encryption, the early internet, data storage and system configurations. I found this to be a an important component in learning more about Snowden’s incredibly brave journey.
