Excellent!

Excellent presentation and elucidation of a topic which all users of the Internet need to be aware of and understand for their safety on-line. A complex subject clearly outlined.

Good information, even for techies.

Where does Darknet rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I enjoyed this book. I am certainly a techie but not necessarily focused on security and anonymity. This book brought together a lot of good information that I was "somewhat" aware of but didn't quite understand.

What did you like best about this story?

The book was informative but concise and not full of meaningless fluff.

What about John T. Parker’s performance did you like?

I thought the narration was quite good. Clear and evenly paced. The narrator had no annoying or distracting mannerisms.

What insight do you think you’ll apply from Darknet?

There are a lot of important precautions one can take to employ both privacy and a high degree of anonymity.

Any additional comments?

I would recommend this for anyone interested in learning the basics of privacy and anonymity.

Information, wise, pretty good.

Not terribly technical, if at all.

But as far as the information needed to shift your mindset when entering the darknet, spot on.

Interesting enough and informative enough to build a good start to a good foundation to build on.

A good overview

This was a good starting point for someone that has little knowledge of the subject and wants to expand their understanding.

For Internet Security Novices, Mostly

Mostly for Internet security novices but I found the review useful. A lot of the book is about the difference between anonymity and privacy.

Great info but I need to listen a few more times

I love the simplified approach. The author claims that if you can install software you can understand. However, people install software(viruses) unknowingly. I think it requires a bit more knowledge than why the author says you need. Overall it's a great short listen and chock full of useful tips and strategies.

Useless information from a paranoid author.

At the beginning of the book, the author clearly states that anyone with basic PC experience is going to be able to follow along.

The book then proceeds to talk about Tor, encryption, privacy, anonymity, and various tools that can be used, but fails to explain terms, and various nomenclature throughout. For example, I wouldn't expect someone "with basic PC experience" to know what a proxy server is, what IPSec means or does, or even what the importance of your IP address is. These are all discussed as if the reader already knows what this means.

The author also makes assumptions that everyone is after him, specifically the NSA, and if you don't follow his words of wisdom here, you're in for it. Why? What do we really do on a day-to-day basis that requires us to jump through numerous hooks to become anonymous on the web?

Bottom line, very little useful information was given, and no solid reasoning is provided as to why one should really be anonymous.
