I went into this book expecting an analysis and history of Anonymous the hacker group, but the book focuses more on a history of internet memes and how they arise primarily from 4chan, Anonymous' home. The book is a great walk down memory lane for anyone who's been on the Internet since at least the 90s, reminding you that sites like Stile Project and Fark were places you used to love visiting. It also reminds you of the sharp delineation between the pre-Facebook Internet, where anonymity was the norm, to post-Facebook Internet, where real identities are a near requirement. But the book doesn't offer anything new to those of us in the pre-Facebook crowd.
