Eric Schlosser


"Los Angeles Times"
"Deeply reported, deeply frightening... a techno-thriller of the first order."

"The Guardian"
"The strength of Schlosser's writing derives from his ability to carry a wealth of startling detail (did you know that security at Titan II missile bases was so lapse you could break into one with just a credit card?) on a co
