Mediaite, February 5, 2011 "While [The Guardian's] rendition of experience does not fail to leave out the requisite depiction of Assange as overbearing and paranoid, the overall tone of the story, rather than vengeful, is surprisingly self-effacing." TechCrunch, February 12, 2011 "You can imagine, then, how delighted I was to receive a copy of the Guardian's new crash-published Wikileaks book and discover that it was all the things I wanted from the Times' book. And more... Indeed, while 'Wikileaks: Inside Julian Assange's War On Secrecy' is many things - a thriller, a story of international diplomacy, a tale of greed and ambition and double-crosses; a comedy, a tragedy - above all it's a manifesto for the future of professional journalism...If Wikileaks is this generation's Watergate, then 'Wikileaks: Inside Julian Assange's War on Secrecy' might well prove to be its All The President's Men; educating a whole new generation of would-be reporters on the power and importance of the professional press." MacLean's, March 1, 2011"Leigh's portrait of the WikiLeaks founder is at once affectionate and damning-a dry-eyed examination of the way celebrity can pervert a burgeoning ego." Eurasian Review, February 4, 2011 "The novelistic lens serves an important purpose by painting a richer, more three-dimensional portrait of the people behind WikiLeaks and the controversies in which they became embroiled." Kaietur News, March 6, 2011"Fantastic... a complicated story of the relationship between a man who is a fanatical political activist (Assange) with no formal journalistic training and no background in the media, and a group of esteemed, famous professional media practitioners." Irish Independent, March 19, 2011 "In unraveling the murky details, the book has also provided a rip-roaring narrative of secrets, tantrums, technological wizardry, personal betrayal and vengeance." The American Prospect, June, 2011 "The best overview of the story as it stood in early 2011 is WikiLeaks: Inside Julian Assange's War on Secrecy...This is a gripping, spy-novel-paced recounting of how WikiLeaks, the Guardian, and the other major organizations managed a first-of-its-kind global news-breaking collaboration."
