"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)

"His set pieces...are breathtaking... Hack Attack captures a picture of bullying and nepotism that should be absent from a democratic society" (Martin Hickman The Independent)

"What is revealed here, in painful, careful detail, is a journalism that held power in contempt.Nick Davies has done a colossal service to Britain's democracy.Hack Attack is the book of a very bold reporter about a passage of arms that he won, to our great benefit." (John Lloyd Financial Times)

"Davies' account of how Murdoch and his dysfunctional lieutenants ensnared, enslaved, and frightened generations of politicians is blistering." (Will Gore Independent on Sunday)

"THE book to drizzle your Piz Buin on." (Hugh Grant Twitter)

"[Davies] tells a brilliant story [and] takes us through the years of sniffing and delving with energy, determination and resilience" (Peter Preston Observer)

"A riveting page-turner. Let's remember that it took a journalist to do the job the authorities had evaded" (Ruth Dudley Edwards Irish Independent)

"The most important book of the year" (Tom Stoppard)


The stand-out, definitive book about phone-hacking, the biggest scandal of our age, told by the man who broke the story

An author with courage 26. August 2014
Von Jal - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Huge read but well worth the effort. Nick Davies has written a book that needed writing. Not intended to be a thriller but 'Hack Attack' is up there with with the wickedest page-turners and the scary part for the reader is that this book is NOT FICTION. I hope the author comes Down Under to write his next book. Australia could use a journalist with the talent and dogged bravery of Nick Davies.

A brilliant insight into the murky world of power 2. Oktober 2014
Von Roy Cooper - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
A brilliant insight into the murky world of power, exposing the corrupt relationship between the UK press, police and politicians who all thought they were untouchable after simply getting away with it for years ... until Nick Davies and his determined team brought their cosy world crashing down.
He never believed that phone hacking had been carried out by a 'single rogue reporter' at Murdoch's News of the World and dug deeper into the background of the sleazy tabloid whose journalists were under so much pressure to get their so-called scoops, they turned to the 'dark side', illegally using phone hacking, hiring private investigators, 'blaggers', and illegally paying/bribing police, prison staff and Royal contacts for information. As a last resort, they then used the might of Murdoch's millions to buy their way out of trouble if anyone complained.
The book charts the Guardian journalist's relentless quest for the truth and how the bully boys lined up to try and thwart him and his paper. And as Davies fought his way through the top-level cover-ups, lies, distortions and threats he got to the heart of the Murdoch empire and finally forced the establishment to act, culminating in Andy Coulson, ex-NOW Editor and David Cameron's head of communications at Number Ten, going to jail for his corrupt practices and the revelation that the paper had illegally hacked thousands of people and even the families of murder victims.
The sad aspect is that although the truth did catch up with Rupert Murdoch, his son James, Coulson, Rebekah Brookes et al., nothing much seems to have changed. The News of the World has gone, but has been replaced with the Sun on Sunday, the press still 'monsters' its victims and Murdoch's global empire is as strong as ever. In some cases, things may have got worst, as the police, using the Leveson Inquiry as an excuse, seem to be riding roughshod over press freedom in the guise of halting corruption.
George Clooney is rumoured to be making a film based on Hack Attack. Should be interesting ... and somehow I don't think the Murdoch-owned 21st Century Fox will be backing it.

The Ugly Truth behind the Murdoch Machine 24. September 2014
Von Alph Williams - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
A true and honest account of blackmail, intimidation, malice, invasion of privacy and toxic falsehood. We know it's a nasty, selfish and crooked world at times, but when those who practise such malice, bullying and corruption have such a strangle hold on our police and our politicians we should become concerned...very concerned. Guardian journalist, Nick Davies has written a gripping account of his David and Goliath struggle with Rupert Murdoch and the Fleet Street hacks. Davies claims only a pyrrhic victory but he does for a short period of time strip the veneer from the corporate monster and expose the rot and power that threatens our democracy. He's a brave man and this is an important account of corruption and abuse of power from a corporation that wields enormous influence, not only in Britain, but the USA and Australia and threatens the very principles on which our governments were established. Highly recommended.
Hacking could never happen in NZ - could it? 17. Mai 2015

It's tempting to think that New Zealand has never suffered from the extraordinary news media behaviour documented by Guardian journalist Nick Davies in Hack Attack.
The only newspaper vaguely resembling the UK national tabloid "red tops" was Truth, and it vanished into oblivion years ago.
However, Nicky Hager's book, Dirty Politics, and the rabid behaviour of blogger Cameron Slater and his fellow travellers suggests the vileness is here too, albeit in a milder form and not involving the industrial-scale phone hacking outlined by Davies.
Since the 1970s, most of the Western world has been brought under the cosh of neo-liberalism, and it seems that is the breed of politics that engenders much of the craven thirst for power that tabloidism feeds.
New Zealand was dragged into the era by Roger Douglas (not Rob Muldoon, as Davies mistakenly claims) in the mid-80s, and has been subjected to the power games ever since (even through the Clark years, when she had the cellphone numbers of prominent journalists she wanted to influence).
There are journalists (and so-called journalists) in New Zealand who sit in cars outside people's homes waiting to "pap" them or confront them over salacious gossip.
However, the approach here is sedate compared to the attack dogs of Fleet Street, especially those employed by Rupert Murdoch (who sold off his New Zealand newspapers long ago, but who still owns the majority of Sky TV).
Their extreme bullying and illegal tactics against anybody who caught their eye or displeased them is revealed in all its lurid detail by this book.
Whether that sort of thing still goes on in Britain is left unclear.
The suggestion from Davies is that while Murdoch and those like him had their fingers burned in the hacking scandal, the digits remained largely intact, and may to this day by flexing over key pads again as geeks find newer and more imaginative ways to pry into people's lives.
The thing is - most people accept it as one of the prices of democracy. Some democracy.
A painful read 20. April 2015

This is a very thorough account of the total lack of ethical concerns in the Murdoch empire. The ruthlessness of the press and the connivance of the police and weakness of politicians was an eye-opener to me. I applaud Nick Davies and the Guardian for bringing it all to our notice.

That said I found "Hack Attack" a most irritating read and I almost abandoned it many times. Nick Davies is a journalist too and writes like one. He sprinkles his account with salacious gossip and has no qualms about repeating the allegations which were published in the very papers he condemns. There is excessive detail which makes it a hard book to follow. He is clearly on a crusade against the Murdochs. I am in no position to know whether all his allegations stand up (presumably they do otherwise he would have been sued) but his language is outrageously loaded. For example Murdochs cars do not drive they "prowl".
