It's read in a highly energetic, sometimes shouting (yes) reading style, totally overexcited, reminescent of geeks and nerds in 80s and early 90s movies. You know, that wise-guy wiz-kid computer nerd who's always the only one who can crack the code and save world, while simultaneously cracking jokes, eating pizza and drinking cola. After a short while, it gets too much, at least for me.
This leads to my next problem with this book:
It's too long. 12 hours and 53 minutes is way too much, both considering his reading style, and the tour-de-force filler content/anecdotes so abundant in it. Most of them center around nerd-lore like Klingon, programming languages... and Ghostbusters references – the latter I happen to share his fascination of though:)
It could be a good book, could just benefit from a 3rd party professional editor cutting it to at least (!) half its length, preferably even a third or fourth. Would make it MUCH MUCH stronger. And helpful.
The author has open sourced, Creative Common'ed the book, so if you want a taste of the book before buying, I recommend you go to its site mindhacki.ng ;)
