I have read all these stories, but because they were produced with influence of the author, but with dramatic license, the stories came alive! Since driving and texting, or watching videos is not viable, I don't understand why more radio drama doesn't exist. This is enjoyable and such a great set of stories by the Grand Master.
Then I will eat my hat. This topic is important, but this was hardly written in a way that makes sense to me. I mean what does a CEO need to know about Chrome Extensions? That there are important security topics to consider as a CEO is true, that you will gain any of those insights in this read is a fantasy.
This book tries to explain technical details, but if I were a CEO, I would want to understand how security will affect my business. Not get a blow by blow explanation of various terms related to security. Especially when simply looking it up on Wikipedia would have been more informative.
I also had to laugh as the narrator spelled out PWNED. Not knowing how it is pronounced is embarrassing for something that is supposed to be an authoritative read.
Just finished listening to this audio book. I found it a well written, fast paced and exciting read. While I haven't been involved in this specific area in my career, this book helped me connect the dots about much that has happened in the news over the past few years.
Those of you here in this group that are deeply entrenched in this space may be well informed. If you are new to this area, this book is an excellent and gripping primer on what is relevant about hacking and the many breaches published over the past few years.
I very much recommend this as an excellent listen!
If you are no hacker, but would like to feel a bit of the excitement and speed of how this whole world works, I suggest listening to it at 3X speed...
Excellent resource. Only thing I came away in this one with that is disconcerting is that there is little in the way of direct advice on what to invest in. However, the extrication strategies seem sound.
This was an excellent listen, along with it's companion "The Smartest IRA Book You'll Ever Read". Very insightful, if you shuffle your 401K allocations to match with the recommendations about varios index funds, you will have achieved an instant ROI with this book.
