3.30  ·  Rating details ·  178 ratings  ·  16 reviews
The NSA hates Tor. So does the FBI. Even Google wants it gone, as do Facebook and Yahoo and every other soul-draining, identity-tracking vampiric media cartel that scans your emails and spies on your private browsing sessions to better target you.
But there's hope. This manual will give you the incognito tools that will make you a master of anonymity!

An interesting read. A bit too "light" for me personally though.

Good tech pointers but lacks structure

It provides a lot of good tech instructions as what to do and to avoid, if you are starting in the anonymity road.
Overall, I found it a bit confusing since it just seemed like a bunch of topics the writer remembered, and then just wrote some content about it.
Buy if you want to start experimenting. To learn more on how it works, better to find an alternative.

Good review of dark net principles

It was a bit generic, not deep enough to give you actionable step by step technical instructions (:D). So it's not practical but theoretical. Interesting short listen, but nothing special.

Answered some basic questions about TOR and anonymity

It's fascinating to see how paranoid some people are.

I'm sure this is a useful tool for those aforementioned paranoids, but for me, it's more story fodder.

Very informative with a very layman's approach, in a good way.

I greatly enjoyed the humor. Was taught a lot of essential data. I will be suggesting this read to many more people.

A solid book to give you an idea of what it takes to stay anonymous online these days.

Good Reference for Anonymous Browsing

Very good rundown of the dark net and what it takes to be anonymous online these days. He makes a very good point about being careful about what you post online about yourself publicly and the need to keep most personal data private.

An "ok" book on the subject of Tor, PGP, encryption and online privacy vs anonymity (two very different things). If you're looking for a ground-up introduction, look elsewhere. Henderson's intended audience is not clear: in some cases he glosses right over concepts a novice would need a basic introduction to, assuming the reader knows exactly what he's talking about; in other cases he agonizingly breaks relatively simple concepts down as if explaining to his grandmother; without consistency.

Aardige intro, wel snel verouderd. Toch wat opgestoken. Niet zo geschikt als luisterboek.

You need to know the basic of the subject before to read it.

This book is not for novices. It is well written but you need to have at least a basic knowledge of the subject.
