Overview

On the road to a bleaker future, is there still a chance to get it right? This work of fiction uses historical information and relevant news stories to draw a line from post 9/11 through the off-shoring of IT jobs and the largest terrorist strike the free world has ever known to the resulting nuclear war. By the year 2012 the U.S. will no longer be a world power. The world will have seen many countries deploy nuclear weapons. Anarchy will reign in many parts of the world and electricity will be considered a luxury nearly everywhere. That, however, is not the interesting part of the story. How we got there is a far more interesting tale indeed. Follow the story from post 9/11 to where it all went bad and see if you can find a way out, not just for yourself, but for everyone.

    ¿We learn from history that we do not learn from history.¿ Georg

    “We learn from history that we do not learn from history.” Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel said that all too true line. We as a people truly do not learn the lessons that we should and continue to make the same mistakes over and over. As individuals, we have the ability to learn and adapt. When we touched the hot stove as young children, we learned never to do that again because of the negative impact. As adults we continue our individual lessons. If we want the raise, we learn to work harder or smarter. If we want to avoid the traffic ticket, we learn to obey the rules of the road. However, as a people, we never learn from the mistakes that we have made. The problem is bridging the gap from individual to group and figuring out how to make the broad changes that are required to continue to survive.

    Mr. Hughes paints a scary but accurate picture of events as they are and events as they will be if things continue unchanged. Many of his thoughts and ideas echo my own. Unfortunately, it is going to take more than the actions of a few open minded individuals to get the boulder rolling. I am hoping that boat rockers like Mr. Hughes will get the attention that is needed to focus where they should.

    After reading this book all I could keep thinking about is where does my personal info really go. You know you have read a really good book if you are still thinking about it after you finished it days ago! This is a book about terrorism, technology and makes you think about how things could be. I really enjoyed reading this book.

    I would recommend this book for people that like to read a book

    I would recommend this book for people that like to read a book that is thought provoking. Some parts were a little out there but could actually happen. I didn't care for some parts because of the language as well as references but that is my personal opinion, I realize that the author has his own way of writing to get his ideas out there. It definitely made me think twice about how many times I have easily offered my information in different ways without thinking twice about it then, now I will think about who or what I am giving my information out to. So if you are interested in reading books that make you think and keep you thinking then this is a perfect read for you!

    Wow, the sexual adult language was not only offensive but could have been totally left out. However it really makes you think & bring attention to you about how vulnerable you can be with sharing your information over the phone and internet. It's a little scary to be honest but all so real. Let's just say it's an "Eye Opener"!!

    Poor character creation hinders interesting theories

    This book starts off with a highly unlikable character having been captured by an unnamed organization intent on destroying his al-Qaeda cell. To be honest, I found nothing redeeming in this, or any of the characters. I could not bring myself to care for any of their lives. Roland Hughes has included a variety of legions in his novel, including Russian Mafia, al-Qaeda, Reformed Nazis, World Finance, IT consultants and more. His partnering of a few of these groups stretches the limits of plausibility. His character development is sketchy and thin. While he gives minor backgrounds for most of the central characters, their personalities do not draw you in. It seems the author's intent is to blame all of the current world political issues on Big Business and our ready acceptance to part with personal information. I can see some merit in this viewpoint, and indeed I found a few concepts in Mr. Hughes book that I might agree with. This is why it has two stars instead of one. But the writing is at times confusing and the characters are highly off-putting. If there was at least one person in the book I could care about my review would be more favorable. Having said all that, it is up to you to decide if this book is something you are interested in reading. If political thrillers are your favorite genre you may very well find this an enjoyable read. But if you look for character development and stories that make you care about the characters I would advise you look elsewhere for entertainment.

    interesting but biased

    The story was pretty interesting, but it did jump around quite a bit. The author also seemed to be pretty biased against corporate America. I don't think that all business people are as scandalous as he makes these people appear. Not everyone who works in a call center overseas is a terrorist either. It makes for an interesting story, but I don't appreciate the agenda behind it. There are also a lot of sexual references that aren't really necessary to the story.

    Highly Recommended Read on Fighting Terrorism, Corporate Greed, and IT Outsourcing

    Before the devastating events of 9/11, no one really thought America was vulnerable to any external influences. Roland Hughes¿ Infinite Exposure, revolving around Nedim, is a wake-up call warning everyone that terror can take many shapes, especially in this technologically advanced word. Hughes suggests that terrorists can turn the financial world upside down in the United States and dwarf the destruction of 9/11 using technology.
    After reading this thought-provoking book, the audience will undoubtedly question any and all who may require their personal contact information. Today, the United States outsources most of its work to offshore locations and other countries, where the jurisdiction may be limited and terrorists would not have a difficult time accessing an individuals¿ personal information.
    The following passage depicts the consequences of corporate greed and outsourcing IT work: ¿Not only were the martyrs being paid to come into the country and kill Americans, they were putting Americans out of jobs from day one.¿

    Rather than forcing ideas down reader¿s throats, Hughes outlines the facts. The audience can decide for themselves how valid and credible Hughes¿ statements are. The book, in its entirety, is well written, genuine, innovative, and an extremely relevant piece of literature.

    Terrorists Exposed!

    Infinite Exposure, by author Roland Hughes, may be the real story of happenings in 2012. According to Hughes, it isn't 'if' it happens, it is 'when'. Hughes writes a powerful book detailing the possibility of an impending terrorist attack. Roland identifies the situations that lead him to his theory, such as growing internet intelligence, and things like the ever growing use of foreign companies to save money. Foreign call centers, Hughes says, will play a big role in the worst terrorist attack the world has seen. Hughes tells a story that starts after the events on 9/11, leading to America's fall from superpower by the end of 2012. Through the story of Nedim, Hughes shows how internet technology is still very useful for terrorists like Al-Qaeda to use against us, despite US efforts to curb such activities after the September 11th attacks. A scary topic many of us would rather ignore, Hughes gives us an inconvenient truth of sorts, that is only available in his powerful book, Infinite Exposure.

    Infinite Exposure is a great terrorism/post 9/11 story that does a pretty good job of taking the real world problems of terrorism and counter-terrorism and putting them into a world of fiction. After reading this book, I am looking forward to seeing what else Mr. Hughes has written.

    I'm a new fan of Roland Hughes. This book had just what I like in a read: It was fast paced, constantly jumping from action to action, well written without being overly descriptive and a cast of characters that each contained personalities and characteristics that lent to the plot of the book very well.

    Mr. Hughes gives the reader a balanced and impartial look at and into the war against terrorism. Most people, when just hearing the word "terrorism," almost always have feelings of anger or spite. This is true even of the people in charge of our national security. The problem, however, is that, in order to properly and effectively plan for any kind of defense of an entire nation, the people doing so must remain impartial and detached. Maybe these people should give Infinite Exposure a read - It could do a lot of good.

    INFINITE EXPOSURE takes the world as it was post-9/11, puts it into a fast paced and well written world of fiction, and exposes it at face value for the reader to come to his or her own conclusions. I found the story to be captivating and entertaining as Mr. Hughes unfolded his tale from first page to last. The action was plentiful and gripping, the characters memorable, and the locations well described. In all, worth the read.

    A great spy and intrigue novel that takes an in depth look at the post 9-11 world and the possibilities, poor choices, and lapses in security that can turn a great nation into something less than what it should be. The characters, locations, and plot kept me reading long into the night as I always wanted to read “just one more chapter” to see what would happen next.

    Contrary to popular belief, not all terrorists are fanatics bent

    Contrary to popular belief, not all terrorists are fanatics bent on bringing about the purge of anyone that doesn't believe in their particular god. As many have heard before: "One man's terrorist is another man's freedom fighter." Sometimes the line between terrorism and national security is very thin indeed. Look at recent stories that concern anti-terrorism methods that have been brought to light. Some of the things that have been done to uncover plots or gather information could often be called uncivilized at best, or downright terrorism at worst.

    Infinite Exposure offers us what the media and most others won't: A balanced look at both terrorism and the ongoing battle against it. It takes us behind the scenes to show us just how far reaching the cause and effect implications of both affect everybody. Now, I hardly condone the actions of those who use fear and uncertainty to manipulate a people, but let's face it: Most people just have no clue about what is really going on and are only concerned with what the media reports. It's past time to take accountability and find out things for ourselves.
