This is my least enjoyable book from audible even including those I returned. The author seems lost interest in the subject early in the book feeling the pages with poorly connecting data to the main theme and he uses metaphors that are disjointed bringing added confusion rather than clarity.
By the time the end of the book the pages run on with filler as if to make a page quota. Add to this is a narrator whose sing song delivery is more fitting narrating a book on the joy of kite flying than what is supposed to be a serious subject.
This book is not the concise and crisp covering of the subject matter I hoped it would be.

if you are someone inclined in computer networking technology and understanding this book is actually pretty good as a reinforcement but not solely for you. This book is definitely designed for those people who if almost every chapter there's a point where they bring up something that you don't know then this book is definitely for you

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
I would only recommend this to someone looking for the backstory on alot of the larger "cyber" stories that have hit the headlines over the past few years
What did you like best about this story?
Told in a very competent manner, never too technically heavy, and only sometimes too light.
Any additional comments?
Overall, don't listen to this book expecting to come out with l33t hacking skills. They barely skim over the technical "how to" in passing. If you're looking for a technical manual, look else where.
But this does give you some of the back story, and elaborates further on matters such as StuxNet, and other headline grabbing cyber stories. If you're already well versed in InfoSec, you may not gain too much from this audiobook, but it acts as a good introduction.
I enjoyed it, and would recommend it with these caveats.

A couple of years old, but still a thorough summary of the cyber threat landscape. Great start point for anyone wanting to learn about the evolution of the internet and cyberspace, better understand the current issues and what we can expect in the near future.
