Suddenly, Sidney's life becomes an Orwellian nightmare when his cover is blown by an online cult that wants to recruit him, and the FBI, which wants him to be a double agent. Sidney is caught between the two powerful camps vying for control of the cyber profiles of every citizen in the world—their personal data, preferences, contacts—everything. When he grows close to a cult member deeply dedicated to the group's WikiLeaks-type mission and infiltrates the very heart of the US government's surveillance complex at the National Security Agency (NSA), Sidney finds himself at the core of the ongoing struggle between data mining and data privacy, computer encryption and open code, the PATRIOT Act and the Fourth Amendment, national security and individual freedom.
As Sidney maneuvers between the anarchist agenda of the Dark Web cyber cult and the mechanisms of the Big Brother police state, he must answer for himself the fundamental questions of the Digital Age:
Is privacy dead? Are we doomed to a real-life 1984? Or is there a way to freedom?

Service in the elite A-Team teaches you to come up with smart, well-researched, and flexible battle plans for completing the mission—every mission. Even when that mission is to spend an arduous year in a hospital recovering from being blown up, badly burned, and shot multiple times. Greg shares the leadership principles and values he learned as a member of an A-Team and teaches us how to apply Special Forces strategies to our personal and business lives.
Conquer Anything is a Special Forces book, but even more than that it is a leadership book designed to help each of us achieve the highest goals possible in our professional and private lives.
“The greatest leaders I know lead by example. They are role models who adhere to standards they set for others and never ask more of them than they demand of themselves. Great leaders don’t just “manage” or “motivate.” They inspire courage, tenacity, perseverance, resilience, and commitment in all who work with them. Greg Stube is such a leader—and an American Hero.
In Conquer Anything Greg draws on a lifetime of “lessons learned” as a highly decorated U.S. Army Special Forces medic in this lucid, straightforward resource for parents, teachers, students, athletes, employers, supervisors, and soldiers. If “success” is in your vocabulary, Conquer Anything is a must read.”—Oliver L. North, Lt Col USMC [Ret.], Host of War Stories on FOX News
