The Financial Times and McKinsey
Business Book of the Year Award 2021 Winner

It is our great pleasure to confirm This Is How They Tell Me the World Ends by Nicole Perlroth as the winner of the Financial Times and McKinsey Business Book of the Year Award 2021.

A ground-breaking study of the hidden realities and staggering implications of the arms race between hackers, cybercriminals, businesses and national governments to infiltrate essential computer systems, Perlroth’s deeply researched and reported book delivers an urgent, alarming analysis of one of the most extreme threats the world faces today.

 

‘Nicole Perlroth has done something that hasn't been done before: going this deep into the mysterious world of hackers. Cyber security isn't featuring highly enough on CEOs' agenda. I hope this award will prompt them to read this book and pay attention.’
