We Are Anonymous is a thrilling, exclusive expose of the hacker collectives Anonymous and LulzSec.
In late 2010, thousands of hacktivists joined a mass digital assault by Anonymous on the websites of VISA, MasterCard, and PayPal to protest their treatment of WikiLeaks. Splinter groups then infiltrated the networks of totalitarian governments in Libya and Tunisia, and an elite team of six people calling themselves LulzSec attacked the FBI, CIA, and Sony. They were flippant and taunting, grabbed headlines, and amassed more than a quarter of a million Twitter followers. The computer security world - and world at large - realized quickly that Anonymous and its splinter groups are something to treat with dead seriousness.
Through the stories of three key members, We Are Anonymous offers a gripping, adrenaline-fueled narrative in the style of The Accidental Billionaires, drawing upon hundreds of conversations with the members themselves, including exclusive interviews. By coming to know them - their childhoods, families, and personal demons - we come to know the human side of their virtual exploits, and why they're so passionate about disrupting the Internet's frontiers.

The ways of the new activists
Great listen the reader easily keeps your attention. Book covers everything about the early days of Anonymous and gives great insight into its members!
not too often does a story that's based in real world history grab your attention and keep it the entire time. Not to mention one based in information technology. definitely inspires you to want to learn more
Great book covering anonymous ! Narrator did a great job ! I would recommend this book for anyone who is interested in anonymous/ hacking stories .
The speaker did a great job with telling the story and with the voices of the hackers. Story was interesting to listen to and kept wanting to hear more. But Tope is right. The hive rule the Internet.
I didn't read the print version but I loved the audio version.
The way the story is told is almost like a good fiction book. Kept it very entertaining.
I loved them all. Abby did a fantastic job with her different voices. She was excellent and fun to listen to as a narrator.
No extreme reactions, just found it very intriguing.
Well worth the price!
Yes! It's a great look into the darker sides of the cyber World. Great story! Great perforamce by Abby Craden
this is an awesome story that any security professional or geek would love.technical aspects are simplified so that anyone would understand and enjoy it. definitely a must read
Managed to take a piece of recent history and use it to tell a story that rolls along like a train.
Occasionally drifts around telling sub stories with too much detail to be believed in full but the majority of the book is impressive.
A very important document of the facts (I hope they are facts).
I could have done without the empty moralizing at the end.
So a few flaws but a good book well delivered.
