Summary
What if you could peer into the minds of an entire population? What if you could target the weakest with messages that only they saw? In 2016, an obscure British military contractor turned the world upside down. Funded by a billionaire on a crusade to start his own far-right insurgency, Cambridge Analytica combined psychological research with private Facebook data to make an invisible weapon with the power to change what voters perceived as real. The firm was created to launch the then unknown Steven Bannon's ideological assault on America. But as it honed its dark arts in elections from Trinidad to Nigeria, 24-year-old research director Christopher Wylie began to see what he and his colleagues were unleashing. And when Britain shocked the world by voting to leave the EU, he realised it was time to expose his associates. Mindf*ck is a terrifying joyride through the new corridors of power. Plunge deep inside the wave of extremism that is sweeping the globe and discover why Brexit is only the beginning. Hostile actors are coming for your data, and they want to control what you think
