Product description

Review

"You won't know whether to laugh or rise up and overthrow absolutely everything." (CHARLIE BROOKER)

"She's a total ninja." (BEN GOLDACRE)

"A wonderful book... Heather Brooke puts every other British journalist to shame. She has changed British public culture and earned an essential place in our national history. She is an extraordinary figure who must be celebrated." (PETER OBORNE)

"Secrecy is one of the great British diseases. It's so secret that we don't even admit we suffer from it. Heather Brooke is part of the cure - challenging the routine concealment and distortion of important information. There should be more journalists doing the same." (NICK DAVIES)

"'passionate, eloquent and persuasive...We need the likes of Heather Brooke to challenge, to take up grievances and to campaign.'" (Peter Riddell,Times Book of the Week)

Book Description

A modern classic of journalism and an iconic investigation of power in C21st Britain, by one of the country's leading reporters.
