Publisher's Summary

So many people take their privacy on the Internet for granted. Some may know and choose to ignore the fact, but every single thing you do online is being tracked and guess what? For better or for worse it is there forever. Whether you're simply browsing websites or you are accessing confidential information that you would rather no one know about there are ways to remain anonymous. Imagine this scenario, you create an account on a forum with your name and decide to do some political freedom fighting with it. Years down the road a future employer of yours does a simple google search of your name and finds everything you've ever done. They don't hire you.

This is a very simple scenario that just scratches the surface of reasons to stay anonymous but the point remains the same. Knowing when and how to remain anonymous is very important. Many people already realize this but have no clue where to start. This book has step by step instructions and techniques involving Tor, VPN's, proxies, and more that will take you to the deepest levels of anonymity in which not even the all-seeing NSA will be able to track you.

A preview of what you will learn:

  • How to remain completely anonymous
  • Exactly what Tor, VPN's, and PGP are
  • How to set up and use Tor correctly for maximum safety
  • Key mistakes to avoid
  • The real capabilities of the NSA
  • Much, much more!

Take charge of your privacy today and buy this book!

A super detailed how-to book

3.5 out of 5 stars

A few times while listening to this I thought, "does this need to be an audiobook?" And honestly, I don't know. I'm an auditory learner -- so listening to things help me more than reading them (which is one of the reasons I love audiobooks so much). But, I think that this book would have been better as a youtube series or even maybe a podcast.

Either way, the book itself was chalk full of details about how to get set up using the "dark net" and what to do and avoid. It also gives some details into the reasonings why and why not for certain aspects of the internet and dark web.

It's definitely detail-oriented. I couldn't sit and listen to this for more than 30-40 mins at a time since it was just so detailed.

If you enjoy books about how to get things set up, technical books, and books on the dark web, then this book is definitely for you. If you are looking to get set up using the Tor browser and want to know how to set it up -- this book will get you there.

Overall, a pretty dry and boring detail-oriented book. But not something I'm mad or sad that I listened to either.

I was given a free copy of this book which hasn't affected my review at all.

Excellent audio book.

Would you consider the audio edition of Tor and the Dark Net to be better than the print version?

Audio version would be a good compendium to the book. It's always great to listen to material like this.

Have you listened to any of John Wray’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, also an audio book I'll listen to often.

Was pretty eye opening but flawed in many ways

Is there anything you would change about this book?

I think the core concept of this is great but the content was flawed in a lot of ways and is going to give a lot of people some half hearted courage that they are safe from prying eyes. I am not saying the content is bad or.... well incorrect. What I am saying is that people for instance my wife listened to it and instantly thought she knew exactly whats what and more paranoid then even! haha.<br/>Coming from a software engineering background I get what the author is ultimately trying to accomplish but the topic is far to broad to try and compile into something like this. Also in some of the cases even I was confused on what was being relayed because it was so crammed together instead of clearly explained in perhaps a multiple series release explaining in more depth different concepts and meanings.<br/><br/>Just my opinion I am sure I am biased but I do think this could use a few clear follow-ups.<br/>

What does John Wray bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

In some cases yes others I feel its more confusing to listen.

Did Tor and the Dark Net inspire you to do anything?

Become a dark ninja of the night!

Any additional comments?

Overall nice work and great effort. I hope you do not take it as criticism because I would look forward to hearing a in depth series from you :)
