    In a compelling business fable, The Myth of Multitasking confronts a popular idea that has come to define our hectic, work-a-day world. This simple yet powerful book shows clearly why multitasking is, in fact, a lie that wastes time and costs money. Far from being efficient, multitasking actually damages productivity and relationships at work and at home.

    Meet Emily and Paul: The parents of two young children, Emily is the newly promoted VP of marketing at a large corporation while Paul works from home or from clients' offices as an independent IT consultant. Their lives, like all of ours, are filled with a bewildering blizzard of emails, phone calls, yet more emails, meetings, projects, proposals, and plans. Just staying ahead of the storm has become a seemingly insurmountable task.

    In this disquieting cyber thriller, Joseph Menn takes readers into the murky hacker underground, traveling the globe from San Francisco to Costa Rica and London to Russia. His guides are California surfer and computer whiz Barrett Lyon and a fearless British high-tech agent. Through these heroes, Menn shows the evolution of cyber-crime from small-time thieving to sophisticated, organized gangs, who began by attacking corporate websites but increasingly steal financial data from consumers.

    Wade T. Brooks says: "A Great Book"
    "Best cyber information"
    Overall

    This is best book I heard so far for Cyber underground activity.
    We are at great risk , we internet users and are at mercy of some criminals.

    Bartlett and Andy , you are real heroes.

    Great work by Joseph Menn.Great audio quality and great content.
    I heard this in one sitting.
    Highly recommend if some body wants to do a reality check on Internet.
    Not technical and very layman style.

    Could history repeat itself, with one giant entity taking control of American information? Most consider the Internet Age to be a moment of unprecedented freedom in communications and culture. But as Tim Wu shows, each major new medium, from telephone to cable, arrived on a similar wave of idealistic optimism only to become, eventually, the object of industrial consolidation profoundly affecting how Americans communicate.

    Neil says: "Very interesting history, biased conclusions"
    "amazing story of technology"
    Overall

    I have been a technology lover for last twenty years but could never see the cycle of development{business cycle }
    In another great book from Tim Wu after Who controls Internet , takes on a ride of technology as if we had gone back in time with main actors of story.
    It has been a interesting read as I have completed part 1 in one go.

    Great work Tim Wu, we need more like you

    Is the Internet erasing national borders? Who's really in control of what's happening on the Net--Internet engineers, rogue programmers, the United Nations, or powerful countries?In this provocative new book, Jack Goldsmith and Tim Wu tell the fascinating story of the Internet's challenge to governmental rule in the 1990s, and the ensuing battles with governments around the world.

    Roy says: "The World is Flat?"
    "Great Introduction to who is in charge of Internet"
    Overall

    I have been in IT business for 10 years and i have presented paper on virus and spam in 1999.
    I find that I have been outdated and this books shows behind the scenes manipulations on Internet.We might have heard and read about incidents from book but author has managed to keep the right mix of details and gives new information and the non biased analysis is a treat.
    This audible will be great for non technical people as it is in easy to understand.
    It is great to know where we stand and how free Internet really is , which is not.
    The audio quality is amazing the and speaker is great.
