The book is well written, as are Greenwald's numerous essays. He does a wonderful job of describing Snowden's character as it relates to the event of his whistleblowing. He describes he details of the NSA's survilance.

An "insta-book" of insightful essays on the Occupy Movement--helpfully includes criticism and discussion of divisions as well as hope for the future.
