I received this book on Netgalley in exchange for a review.

Most people have heard of cybercrime and the darknet (usually in movies) but majority of people don’t actually understand what those terms mean. This book is written for those who want to learn more about the reality of online security and privacy.

The book is divided into two parts: Cybercrime and The Darknet. It’s quite well organized and written simply enough so that people who aren’t good with tech can understand it, but not so simply

The book is divided into two sections, the first one covers cyber crime and the second one cover darknet. It is a comprehensive account of both cyber crime and darknet for individuals who want to learn more about these aspects of the Internet. The good part was that a lot of examples have been used to describe each and every topic but on the downside, the book only comprises of dry facts which makes it a painfully slow and dry read.

A 4/5 of five. It's a nice introduction to topics most people have probably heard, but don't really know what they are about. This book summarizes things like bitcoin, how to access the internet off the grid, and how to buy drugs on the Dark Net. Hackers, terrorists, and pedophiles are also discussed in this book, so be ready for some dark shit.

The author herself doesn't come off as very technical herself. Most of the book is providing a definition of a topic, and then summarize articles relate

If you are looking for a book about the level of cybercrime nowadays, this is the recommended read. It uses a simple language, with explanations of terms, as well as extensive coverage of different chapters and domains, such as bullying and harassment online. It also offers the main points of view in the discussion about the extent of the civil disobedience faced with the 'interests of the state' played on the lanes of the so-called 'dark side of the Internet'. The authors offers a relatively cl ...more

Concisely written, but with enough details to understand how cybercrime is becoming bigger and bigger threat to society.

Repetitive on a lot of the points it has to make about the reasons behind the rise of the darknet popularity.

Very basic view of cybercrime. Misunderstands the concept of entrapment.

Magnificent Guide to the Darker Side of the Internet :
Author, Cath Senker, examines the so-called "Dark Net": what it contains, how it is accessed and by whom it is usually used. It is a remarkably informative work.
She objectively explores the ever growing "Dark Net" which is frighteningly so much larger than the internet most of us are aware of and use. She likens the everyday internet to the tip of an iceberg, thus the size of the "Dark Internet" is immense.
Yet in spite of repeated Newspaper

[I received a copy of this book through NetGalley.]

This book provided an introduction to part of what you can find on the "Deep Web". If you don't know anything about it, or just a few things, it will give you some starting points which you can use to then find out more. If you already know what there is to know, probably the book won't be useful, though.

Divided in two parts, "Cybercrime" and "The Dark Net", it introduces some of the basic ideas and concepts. What's the Deep Web and what can y

Have you heard about Anonymous and Wikileaks? What about Bitcoin and Blockchain? Do you know what a DDoS attack is?
Sure, in this technological era, we have all heard someone mentioning one of this things. But how many of us can say that they truly understand how it works?
Well, for those of you who are interested in the subject but don't really know where to begin this is the perfect book.
If you are like me, who at the mention of "escrow" thinks "what animal is that?", this book is the perfect p

Interesting and very scary book. I finally understand a little bit more about the dark net and what happens there. I would really love to take a tour, but it seems pretty dangerous.

Libro molto interessante che mette anche paura. Finalmente ho capito qualcosa di piú della dark net e cosa ci succede e ora mi piacerebbe proprio farci un giro, ma magari evito.
