The writing is clean, but there’s too much subtle hedging. You can get a taste with above: “possibly,” “likely,” and “could” eventually undercut the argument.

Synopsis

Author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Against All Enemies, former presidential advisor and counter-terrorism expert Richard A.

Every concerned American should read this startling and explosive book that offers an insider’s view of White House ‘Situation Room’ operations and carries the reader to the frontlines of our cyber defense. Cyber War exposes a virulent threat to our nation’s security. This is no X-Files fantasy or conspiracy theory madness—this is real.

Unsurprisingly, the truth lies in between. Some regulation is required and internet users, whether individual or institutional, need to become much more security conscious. Take Clarke’s warnings with a pinch of salt but do not dismiss them out of hand.
