I have always trusted Dan Rather and appreciated his storytelling abilities. In this book, however, he has one agenda. His message is that "he was right and CBS was wrong." The story is interesting and I believe him but I just couldn't take his repeating and repeating the story from every angle imaginable. Beating and beating and beating the story to death. I should have trusted the Audible readers stars and not purchased this one. Never got beyond his first story.
This book starts out as an interesting, intriguing book about a group of computer hackers and their exploits. Later, however, it gets bogged down in a great deal of biographical info that could have been abbreviated or summarized. Yes, it is interesting to know the background of the hackers and why/how they got into the business of hacking. After a while I just couldn't listen to the narrator describe one more stupid trick on an unsuspecting target such as a restaurant or fast food purveyor. Didn't go further. If it got more serious or more interesting later in the book, I will never know.
Don't know if I would try another book. I have come to trust Audible listener ratings overall, not just the good reviews highlighted in the email newsletters
