Publisher's Summary

The NSA hates Tor. So does the FBI. Even Google wants it gone, as do Facebook and Yahoo and every other soul-draining, identity-tracking vampiric media cartel that scans your emails and spies on your private browsing sessions to better target you.

But there's hope. This manual will give you the incognito tools that'll make you a master of anonymity! Other books tell you to install Tor and then encrypt your hard drive...and leave it at that. I go much deeper, delving into the very engine of ultimate network security, taking it to an art form where you'll grow a new darknet persona - how to be anonymous online without looking like you're trying to be anonymous online.

Covered in Tor and the Dark Art of Anonymity:

  • Browse the Internet Anonymously
  • Darkcoins, Darknet Marketplaces, and Opsec Requirements
  • Tor Hidden Servers
  • How to Not Get Caught
  • Counterforensics the FBI Doesn't Want You to Know About
  • Windows vs. Linux - Which Offers Stronger Network Security?
  • Cryptocurrency (Real Bitcoin Anonymity)
  • Supercookies and Encryption
  • Preventing Marketers and Debt Collectors from Finding You
  • How to Protect Your Assets
  • How to Hide Anything

    "Short, and not a lot of detail"

    Good information but very limited in details about the actual application, wish I was a lot longer.

    "Good Read"

    Enjoyed TOR, I had been in search of a book that would be more than a technical manual but provided descriptive examples as well. This book offered both. Great attention holder. Story's were well selected for illustration.

    "A little bit dated but a very good book."

    I plan on buying the paperback version. It's a great reference, a good start in opsec if not a reminder. Things change quickly and Darkcoin is now rebranded as Dash but other then that everything is SOLID! Hope this review helps.

    "Good information for beginners about opsec 101."

    Sort and two the point work some great practical information about opsec 101, some 102. Worth checking out if you are not sure where to start. Good narrator.

    "Interesting overview but unprofessional tone"
    What did you like best about Tor and the Dark Art of Anonymity: How to Be Invisible from NSA Spying? What did you like least?

    There is an interesting smattering of information about different apps, services, techniques and theories


    Any additional comments?

    Some of the technical info was really interesting, and it certainly gave me quick overview of the landscape and some current applications. As with all books, the application names can be quickly out of date but the author does a good job of delving into some of the technical detail.I found the undertone really put me off though - the author cannot help but continually imply that the security agencies are out to put innocent people in jail and he even refers to foreign governments using words like 'cesspools', and at one point goes off on a tangent about being bullied at school and therefore desiring privacy. As an IT professional who is just curious about how these technologies work, I found this quite offputting and it undermined some of the serious aspects of the book.

    "informative read overall"

    overall this is not a bad a read and is quite informative across the chapters. it is a little short though and I felt it could have been longer.

    however, I would recommend it to anyone interested in Tor, anonymity and privacy online, and think that you'll feel more informed about these topics by the time you reach the end

    "Very informative"

    I bought another, more popular book expecting to learn about TOR and hopefully give myself some lessons and education on the subject. However, this isn't what I got.

    So I found this book, with some reservations as there wasn't any reviews. I was pleasantly surprised. The narration is good, but obviously narration isn't something that takes away from this as it is just an informative book with plenty of 'do's' and 'don'ts'. Exactly what I was looking for.

    Story
    "Poorly written, too pro crime, but interesting"
    What disappointed you about Tor and the Dark Art of Anonymity: How to Be Invisible from NSA Spying?

    Full of weak allegories that detract from the important information, speaks of being pro privacy and not pro crime but contains suggestions that are far from innocent. The reader clearly isn't technical and so details get confused with incorrect phrasing.This all means that someone who reads this with a view to learning from it can easily get the wrong impression and actually miss some of the vital detail.Not enough detail on VPNs or Bitcoin.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Good introduction to Tails.


    What does James C. Lewis bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Nothing positive unfortunately. Poor choice of reader for a specialist technical book.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Tor and the Dark Art of Anonymity: How to Be Invisible from NSA Spying?

    Drop the childish allegories and anecdotes. Add real experience based on pure privacy rather than the criminal application of it.


    Any additional comments?

    Either use a reader who understands the content or give the reader some technical guidance. Clearly the book was not proof read (heard?) by a techie after it was recorded.

    "Useful information"

    Pretty useful content and tips. It might be a bit extreme for those who just want to know how Tor works and get some basic principles of anonymity. Part of the content felt like it was meant for those doing pretty shady or ilegal stuff. Even though, it is still pretty useful and informative.

    I really liked this book. But even although it's well read and good content I would have probably preferred the book and not the Audio book.
    Very good.
