Reviews

"As an American double agent who worked against Russian intelligence in the US, this book shows how Putin's spies stop at nothing."
-Naveed Jamali, former double agent and author of How to Catch a Russian Spy

"The Plot to Hack America is an essential primer for anyone wanting to be fully informed about the unprecedented events surrounding the 2016 U.S. presidential election. Published shortly before the election, the book still provides the basic framework for understanding all that came after the election, much of which corroborates Nance's claims and speculation. Remember, many people disputed or downplayed Russian involvement at the time. Subsequent developments show that Nance, the experienced intelligence operative, was way ahead of the curve."
-Michael Lipkin, New York Journal of Books

"If you've read books like... Defeating ISIS, you know Malcolm's expertise. If you've seen his 2007 congressional testimony using his firsthand experience with waterboarding to call it torture-back when that was controversial-you know Malcolm's integrity. And if you've spent any time with his fellow Navy chiefs, you know Malcolm's bluntness. It's worth scrutinizing this bizarre episode in American politics and security. It's unlikely to be a one-off event. After all, bears tend to go where they want-unless something stops them."
-Spencer Ackerman, US National Security Editor, The Guardian, from his foreword

"Every single assertion Nance offers is backed by material from the PUBLIC record, clearly documented in end notes."
-Kenneth J. Bernstein, Daily Kos

"The Plot to Hack America reads like a spy thriller, but it's all too real."
-US Daily Review

"If you had read this book as I did in November 2016 after Trump's surprising, even to him, election, you would have known all this and all the characters now appearing who were in the Trump orbit and campaign... Thanks to the hero of the day, Malcolm Nance, we all now see where Mueller's investigation is going and how its widening net includes interviewing White House insiders and Trump's family members... By reading this book, at the urging of some of my key European advisors, I was forewarned of exactly how the Internet and all our media would be used by the Kremlin hackers to exploit the gullibility of US voters, so as to create today's confusion and further divisions in our society."
-Hazel Henderson, Ethical Markets

*** Praise for Malcolm Nance's New York Times bestselling Defeating ISIS ***

"I really think the [2016 Presidential] candidates ought to read this... You should buy this book."
-Rachel Maddow, The Rachel Maddow Show, MSNBC

"A comprehensive, authoritative, and detailed compendium on the Islamic State (ISIS)."
-Perspectives on Terrorism

"In his detailed and informed study Nance argues that, in effect, America's War on Terror created a new breed of vicious terrorists who wear the mask of Islam like actors in a Kabuki theatre while carrying out horrifically un-Islamic acts."
-Richard Engel, Chief Foreign Correspondent, NBC News, from his foreword

*** On the Russian Hacking ***

"Putin and the leaders throughout the world have no respect for our country anymore and they certainly have no respect for our leader."
- Donald Trump, President of the United States of America

"We know that Russian intelligence services hacked into the DNC and we know that they arranged for a lot of those emails to be released... But I think laying out the facts raises serious issues about Russian interference in our elections, in our democracy."
-Hillary Clinton, Democratic presidential candidate and former Secretary of State

"What we do know is that the Russians hack our systems. Not just government systems, but private systems."
-Barack Obama, former President of the United States of America

*** Russia's Response ***

"I wouldn't know anything about it. You know, there are so many hackers today and they work with such finesse, planting a trail where and when they need... It's difficult to trace, if even possible... The important thing here is what the public was shown... One shouldn't draw the public attention from the core of the issue by replacing it with secondary details like who did it."
-Vladimir Putin, Russian President

"Overall, we still see attempts to use-manically use-the Russian issue during the US electoral campaign. . . . The absurd claims were immediately refuted directly by a presidential candidate's family."
-Dmitry Peskov,Russian government spokesman

*** Praise for Skyhorse Publishing ***

"In the era of corporate dominated mainstream media and feckless herd reporting, Skyhorse's willingness to tackle tough issues that other publishers won't touch has made it a critical cog in our democracy."
-Robert F. Kennedy Jr., New York Times bestselling author
