The Snowden Files: The Inside Story of the World's Most Wanted Man, authored by Luke Harding, tells us the stories of those people behind history's biggest information leak and of those forces that tried to stop them. Snowden is the man who is now being hunted for this breach of intelligence. Summary of the Book Edward Snowden is a young computer genius. He was working for the Central Intelligence Agency, the CIA and as a contractor for the America's National Security Agency, the NSA. While the NSA was audacious enough to call the act of spying on the entire world as 'master the internet', by using their intellectual power and technology, all the others called it the breach and death of individual privacy. Snowden and a few others were completely against this. The Snowden Files unravels the story that followed Snowden's email which read 'I am a senior member of the intelligence community...' He exposed several classified documents to many media houses. This, by far, has been referred to as the most momentous information leak in the history of the U. S. Snowden is now the most wanted man. He is known to have found his refuge in Russia. About Luke Harding Luke Daniel Harding works for The Guardian newspaper.
