I don't get the point of this book. It doesn't really cover the topic of corporate espionage in America. Instead it focuses on one particular case. Even by 2000 there were more and more interesting cases than the one about tape. Oh, and I don't need to be made a technical expert in the research and manufacture of tape in order to understand the theft of intellectual property. In some ways I think this book is like a failed literature review.

Though its narrative is a little meandering and hard to pin down, overall it is an interesting and 'sexy' read. I would have preferred a broader scope but I do understand the author's tactic of focusing on specific stories to draw his reader in. The jokes are a bit cheesy but serve to make light of a pretty shifty topic. Well done, but truly more entertaining than informative.
