(Subtitle: “How Russians, the Rich and the Government Try to Prevent Free Speech and How to Stop Them”)

This may well have been my first Audiobook, bought partially for cost reasons but also as it was read by the author. It was an illustrated description of the sorts of legal techniques that malfeasants use to stymie threat and stop investigation, through such tools as SLAPPs, libel cases, etc. As ever with these things, jawdropping to hear but of course all perfectly legal and within the rules of the game. Fascinating, and totally disempowering.
