ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Barry Meier was a member of the New York Times reporting team that won the 2017 Pulitzer Prize for International Reporting. During a 28-year-long career at The Times, his work concentrated on the intersection of business, medicine and the public’s health. He exposed the dangers of various drugs and medical products, including a defective heart device and a generation of flawed artificial hips and was the first journalist to shed a national spotlight on the abuse of OxyContin.
ABOUT THE BOOK
“A former New York Times reporter and a member of the paper’s team that won the 2017 Pulitzer Prize for International Reporting, Meier here exposes the big business that is private spying today…Want dirt on your enemies? No problem! It’s cheaper and easier than ever, as these spies stare into our private lives, checking out our emails and shaping what we see on social media, and dangerously influence political elections.”—Library Journal
