    The definitive inside account of the file-sharing revolution that overthrew the music industry, All the Rave reveals the family betrayal, greed, and mismanagement that hijacked one the most fundamental innovations of the Internet era. Named one of the three best books of 2003 by Investigative Reporters and Editors Inc., All the Rave has been out of print until now and unavailable in most formats. Author and veteran technology journalist Joseph Menn also wrote 2010's Fatal System Error: The Hunt for the New Crime Lords who are Bringing Down the Internet.

    Story
    What disappointed you about All the Rave?

    I found the story was not put together in a way that was engaging or very interesting. The potential for a great telling of the story of Napster. This was boring.


    What was most disappointing about Joseph Menn’s story?

    The narrator's delivery and weak writing.


    Would you be willing to try another one of John Rubinstein’s performances?

    I would have to hear a sample first to make sure this book's failure was just the bad writing and storytelling.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment. Was excited to learn more than was in the newspaper about the rise and fall of Napster.
