Karen Erdmann This book is incredibly detailed and enlightening to the layers of secrecy and power that few recognize. Malcom Nance is called "an intelligence, counterterrorism, and national-security lifer" He speaks with a depth of knowledge and shares this story with a warning and a concern that we guard the integrity of our country.

I have a different opinion: Nance is just a fake news shill who is a horrible writer and a horrible person. And clearly, all these people here who gave this book anything more than 2 stars are disjointed, suffering from delusion, and likely smoking the crack.


Richard I worked for the NSA gathering intelligence for our country. Malcom Nance knows the policies, the procedures, and the language. I am convinced that he knows exactly what he is talking about, and he certainly is not a "fake news shill." I can spot fake NSA and CIA blather as soon as I see it in the many books that are published every year. "The Plot to Hack America" is not one of them. It is genuine.

His book was nonsense. There was absolutely nothing credible about it. The dude hates Trump and just wants to smear him. If he was infact credible, why only pursue action against one individual or party? Since his book has been written, we found out more about the DNC and their own coverups. Nance isn't interested with Clinton, Podesta, Wasserman-Schultz, or the rest of the corrupt individuals within this party. Malcolm Nance is most certainly a shill even if he was the fly on the wall in the Oval Office. Just another one of Obama's holdover thugs that needs to be vanquished.1

You've been listening to too much Alex Jones, and watching too much Fox News. Do your homework and learn the truth, instead of parroting the extreme Right's talking points.


Richard Your level of ignorance is absolutely astounding. You have made a number of assumptions — and they are all dead wrong!

My side? And just what do you suppose is "my side"? You have no idea at all about my politics, and you repeat your ignorance with every sentence. Get a grip! And try to be a bit more civilized with your language . . . Duh!


James Mc Donald One of the examples why I didn’t like this publication is the very first sentence in the forward of this publication implying 63 million Americans elected Donald Trump because of “white backlash”.

The comment is offensive and left a sour residue, making it difficult to objectively read the rest of the publication. My life experiences tell me the statement, “white backlash” is an implied racist comment that also happened to be originally uttered by Van Jones on CNN’s election night coverage. Nor did Mr. Ackerman, the author of the forward in this book credit the racist comment to Mr. Jones as it would appear Mr. Ackerman committed plagiarism too. I was profoundly disappointed with the senior chief’s decision to allow such an inflammatory, unsubstantiated claim in his publication, specifically at the very beginning of this book as the statement undermines the three core values I learned when I was in the Navy referencing Honor, Courage and Commitment, which was one of the reasons why I selected this book over some of the others I’ve not read because (I incorrectly assumed) the Senior Chief’s publication would be objective, and not subjective as quality leadership skills learned in the United States Navy require this distinction for the successful completion of any mission, retired or not.

Regardless if the facts came from the "right" or the left, facts are still facts, specifically when you have done your homework to be a better informed American. This author has failed and regretfully, many have been duped.
