This is a great little book. I bought this and How to be Anonymous Online - A Quick Step-By-Step Manual. They should be merged into one book because they are perfect together. Darknet is in depth about how a bunch of different anonimity and encyption stuff works. How to be Anonymous Online literally is specific instructions on anonymity. One gives you a general understanding and one gives you exact instructions. In my opinoion you need both. and together they cost less than a month of my ip proxy provider. I highly suggest Darknet: A Beginner's Guide to Staying Anonymous especially for the money.
This book does have some good advice, but it is difficult to read through all the hyperbole and for some, it may be difficult to tell what is fact and what is exaggeration. Despite the author's claims, there is no such thing as "TOTAL 100% ANONYMITY" and offering people this "peace of mind" is downright fraudulent.This book is also out-of-date in several areas. With a subject as rapidly changing as online anonymity, updates are necessary and these small changes make you vulnerable online.I wish I could recommend this book, but I can't.Instead, you should check out more up-to-date-books with less embellishment like Incognito Toolkit - Tools, Apps, and Creative Methods for Remaining Anonymous, Private, and Secure While Communicating, Publishing, Buying, and Researching Online and Easy Private Browsing: How to Send Anonymous Email, Hide Your IP address, Delete Browsing History and Become Invisible on the Web.
This book is good but disappointingly short. If I had seen the page count prior to buying, I'd likely not have pad $5. Still, the book is good. I was just expecting something with greater depth.
Although there is information, its vague and obvious such a cleaning your harddrive and using tor. Writing style too simple, like they are not educated even though they might be in an industry. This is almost general knowledge. Lack of detail.
I noticed a number of minor spelling errors, which were pretty embarrassing to find. I think I counted about 6?The book is starting to show its age a bit and probably needs to be revised - TrueCrypt is now defunct, and unfortunately took up a large portion of this book. "So...the book is bad then?" I hear you ask. No. It's not a bad book. The content in it is alright. The concepts are solid and it's written in plain English. It reaches the target audience. It just needs work.
This book is an excellent guide that shows you all of the steps you can take to protect yourself from people accessing the information you have on your computer. In the day and age we live in, you can't be too careful about privacy protection. The thing I really liked about this book is the fact that you don't have to have a PhD in computer science to implement the recommendations the author makes. They are all very easy to set up.
I really liked the book, I do wish that it had more up to date information though. The only other problems that I had with this book was that fact that it just was so thin, and that it didn't have the pages numbered. I would still recommend it to anyone who has restrictive internet firewalls in their country, or for anyone who is a security geek like myself.
This book does one thing very well:it gives an overview of secure methods of communication, and multiple avenues to achieve the goal. The only fault is it could have gone deeper into each, but there is amply information given about all to permit someone to start using them. You are also given pointers to additional information. I recommend this book.
