Format: Hardcover
This book is a great reminder of how the internet world can be today. Thomas did a wonderful job of collecting facts, ideas, and views of all the danger that the public is facing today. I recently spoke with a member of a group mentioned in the book that I happen to know, and he referred it to me. It was a great way to pass the time and help learn about mistakes that you could make.
