Read this book.

Somewhat out of date but certainly entertaining. this book is easily read but still thought provoking- particularly when you consider the author's brave stance against censorship and legislation of morality.

There were a few interesting facts and legal perspectives I'd never before considered. The book was somewhat informative, very opinionated, and a little bit dated. I read it on the recommendation of a senior work colleague, but I was overall disappointed with the lack of technical data.

The subject was interesting enough, but the book was riddled with spelling mistakes and badly formatted sentences. It was rather off putting at times.
