Publisher's Summary

Cody Wilson, a self-described crypto-anarchist and rogue thinker, combines the controversial yet thrilling story of the production of the first ever 3-D printable gun with a startling philosophical manifesto that gets to the heart of the 21st-century debate over the freedom of information and ideas.
Reminiscent of the classic Steal This Book by Abbie Hoffman, Cody Wilson has written a unique, critical, and philosophical guide through the digital revolution. Deflecting interference from the State Department and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, the story of Defense Distributed - where Wilson's employees work against all odds to defend liberty and the right to access arms through the production of 3-D printed firearms - takes us across continents, into dusty warehouses and high-rise condominiums, through television studios, to the Texas desert, and beyond.
Harkening to both Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance and The Anarchist Cookbook, Come and Take It follows a group of digital radicals as they navigate political subterfuge to create a technological miracle against all odds. Combining elements of a modern-day thriller with a fascinating philosophical treatise, Wilson paints a scathing and timely portrait of an ideologically polarized America and his own struggle in the fight for liberty.

Absolute waste

I was super exited to listen to this book. I am a fan of the author and his work, and I was really looking forward to the content of the book.

If I had to break down the contents of this book I would do so as follows:

80% worthless, pointless descriptions of events, places and things that had nothing to do with anything.

15% a summary and explanation of events you probably already know about and could easily learn by watching online interviews of him

5% actually interesting new stuff you didn't know about or was interesting

Very disappointed. Cody should have listened to his publisher and done a manifesto instead. As this currently stands I won't read it ever again or recommend it.

great book and philosophical for a gun book.

it was a great story of how the liberator was made. Cody does a great job explaining why he made the gun and the importance of it's continued research and proliferation. It is a good step to the nullification of gun control laws.
