Review

"This is the book we’ve been waiting for, the thrilling and important inside story of how a single reporter came through with the truth of the hacking scandals. He exposed shameful intrusions, the years of deceit, lies, and bullying. And he did more. He revealed a rottenness at the heart of British life in the relations of press, police, and Parliament, institutions that, taken as a whole, failed the big test. Hack Attack is an indictment of the worst of journalism, but is itself an exhilarating demonstration of how the best of journalism―hard-won, honest reporting―is the lifeblood of any democracy." (Sir Harold Evans)

"First in the Guardian and now in this book, the reporting of Nick Davies has revealed the insidious abuse of power―and the public trust―by the Murdoch press from the top down. The British hacking scandal is the ultimate expression of Murdoch-culture run amok: corruption in the Fourth Estate as dangerous to democracy as the worst excesses of heads of state. " (Carl Bernstein)

"This has all the elements – lying, corruption, blackmail – at the highest levels of government by the biggest newspaper in London. And the fact that it’s true is the best part. Nick is a brave and stubborn reporter and we consider it an honor to put his book to film." (George Clooney (who is set to direct the film of the book))

"Nick Davies is Britain’s greatest investigative journalist... This book is as exciting as a thriller but far more important... should be compulsory reading in journalism schools and must be read by anyone who wishes to understand how British politics actually works." (Peter Oborne Telegraph)

"Gripping …the best account we have of the phone-hacking scandal and the attendant police corruption and cover-ups...A masterly summary of the hacking affair, as well as the ingenuity and persistence that lead to great journalism." (Henry Porter Observer)

Book Description
