Mark Bowden's book about a small group of techies battling against the Conficker Computer Worm in 2009 was more educational than thrilling to me. While the true life cyber battle is the focus of the book it suffers the messiness of real life. But I found his explanations of how the internet works very enlightening (if not a bit too technical.) He uses a very tiresome device of associating the team with the X-men and I was tempted to remove a star just because of it. If you are not interested in the subject I would skip it but if you are it is an interesting and at times fun read.
