I began reading this book with enjoyment, but after reading a quarter of the book I started to wonder when the subject matter was going start focusing less on 4chan and more on Anonymous. Based on the title, cover, and description of the book I was led to believe Cole Stryker's book was an in depth look at Anonymous. Instead it's a bird's eye description of internet culture as a whole, spritzed with occassional quotes interviews. According to my Kindle, the operations of Anon were not detailed until about 75% into the book, and only one chapter is dedicated to such. That single chapter quickly summarizes a handful of Anon's operations, with Stryker offering little more than info easily found on Wikipedia. Quite a disappointment, to say the least.
