The format of this book is not lend itself well to an audio recording. The chapters, section and subsections can be hard to follow, and the reader, however wonderful he may be as a James Earl Jones stand in, is not the right voice for the job.
If you enjoyed Chip and Dan's last book, Made to Stick, or if you enjoy their column in Fast Company, this is a somewhat formulaic product from the dynamic duo. I found their treatment of the topic to be a little elementary, simplified presumably for the lowest common denominator. For more academically rigorous intellectuals, I would recommend reading something in the area of behavioral economics, like Predictable Irrationality, rather than spending time on a drawn out metaphor about an elephant and it's rider. 3 stars for the book but only 2 for this audio recording.
I have to agree with one of the other reviewers - this book is much less about the theater of cyber crime and cyber terrorism, and much more the anecdotes of one figure in the drama. Mildly entertaining, it left me unsatisfied, having expected something more from the interview I heard on NPR.
