    1. This is a collection of mostly unrelated articles. Several of them are just stories about criminals that don't appear to have anything to do with hacking or even computers. The articles have not been updated from the original versions, so several seemed out-of-date to me.Aimed at a general audience and at times sensationalized, e.g. "Information on coding is just a few clicks from sites on criminal hacking."The articles on geohot and Justin Frankel were interesting, though surely Frankel doesn't [...]


    2. This is kind of a tough book to rate/review. It's a collection of reports of hacker cases in the recent few years. Some I'd heard of, some I hadn't. The reports themselves are usually pretty well formulated and are interesting to hear, but of course being real life, they don't really wrap up or anything. Some of the hacks are just kind of dumb. Some are terrifying to consider being on the receiving end of. I'm a tech guy but this really reinforces how pieced together our modern tech world is, an [...]


    3. I never finished listening to this work and here is why.This work is a collection of unrelated articles, having been written in the past and gathered for this collection. Each article is not updated and increasingly out of date. Being unaltered in an audiobook, you are repeatedly subjected to foul language. And finally, these articles have little technical detail, which is frustrating for a computer scientist.


    4. Aside from many of the stories and information being repetitive, I was surprised at how linked everyone is in the world of hacking and tech. I was interested from start to finish and found out more than I wanted to about the dark web, and some of the shady things that go on online. I consider myself a geek, but I had no idea about many of these things. Great story. I only gave it a four because some of the information was repetitive. We listened to this on a road trip.


    5. Some stories were really good, some just okay. And I think some of then weren't about hacking, really, but I didn't mind.



    6. I thought this book was ok. I picked it up from a Humble Bundle sale, so I mostly went in to it cold, without any real idea what it was about.What it was about was a compilation of stories about "true hacking stories"; many of which were interesting, some of which were boring (and only tangentially related to "hacking" due to the subjects using a computer at some point in the story, it seemed), one of which was completely gristly and horrifying and another completely insane.Owing to listening to [...]
