Publisher's Summary

What would life be like if we could buy and sell things online without any governmental regulation or control? That concept is what comprises Silk Road. Silk Road wasn't just an online black marketplace where illicit goods could be sold; it was also a marketplace where you could purchase these illicit goods anonymously. It may have made us reconsider just how much governmental control is really in existence because the power of government control has increased so slowly that we haven't really noticed. Silk Road can be looked at as an historical experiment or as a criminal enterprise, but it is up to you to decide. This book gives an in-depth summary of how Silk Road operated, a detailed history of Silk Road, the arrest and trial of Ross William Ulbricht, a description of Silk Road 2.0 (Silk Road's sequel), the products Silk Road sold, the sales statistics of Silk Road, and the sites that have attempted to copy Silk Road.

Deep Web Drugs EXPOSED

Clinger talks about the Silk road, a deep web connection for drugs. He provides its entire history, from the way it started right up to the end. He details what the Road was, and how it was brought down. This is a 1/2 hr long book, so he only gives you the most basic details, in spite of this, the book manages to keep your attention and provide everything you need to know.

I hadn't heard Meadow narrate before; she is clear and easy to follow.

I would give this zero stars, but someone might misinterpret that as not having reviewed the book.

I regret having purchased this. The narration was robotic. The information was the barest outline that one could glean from news media or public court documents.

This should be made in a documentary!

Would you listen to Silk Road: The History of the Online Black Marketplace and Its Brief Existence again? Why?

Yes, I have listened to it twice already! The narrators voice is perfect for this book, and the author did a great job discussing Silk Road and the many secrets that lie with it.

Really cool audiobook on Silk Road

The author did a great job at explain what Silk Road and the dark things that it possesses. I can't believe a site like that was allowed to exist for such a long period. An extremely eye-opening audiobook!
