More About the Author

Joshua Davis is a writer, television host, documentary director and film producer.

In 2003, Josh covered the Iraq war for Wired Magazine, where he is a Contributing Editor. He has tracked rumors of genetically modified cocaine behind rebel lines in Colombia, investigated the world's largest diamond heist, and hunted the source of a cyberwar in Russia. In 2005, Random House published Josh's memoir, "The Underdog," which details his journey through some of the world's most outlandish competitions. The Los Angeles Times calls it "laugh out loud funny," and Entertainment Weekly declares "the rewarding Underdog proves that Davis is a winner at something."

In 2013, Josh and Joshuah Bearman formed EPIC, a magazine devoted to telling extraordinary true stories. The venture comes on the heels of Argo, the Academy Award-winning film, which was based on an article Bearman wrote. Over the past 10 years, Josh and Bearman have sold 20 articles to Hollywood, with 2 films produced.

So far, the reviews seem right on point. This is a very interesting read and well worth the $0.99 that it is selling for. It is a fascinating breaking story that keeps the reader engaged. It is well written and provides some very candid insights into the recent life of John McAfee. However, as others have noted, it is very short -- more like an extended article than a book -- I finished it in about 45 minutes and I think I read at a pretty average speed. It also leaves you hanging because the story is still very much in progress. I was shocked to find when I read the book, the closing accounts were less than a week old...talk about hot off the press.

I am not sure how this "breaking news" kindle book format will work on in the long run. I am willing to pay for great coverage of current events (which this books qualifies as), but it certainly has a short shelf life. If I bought this book after a major development occurred in the McAfee story, I would be disappointed.

Final thoughts: It is worth the money for a great story, but it has the feel of something rushed to press in order to scoop other writers.

I could not stop reading this fascinating glimpse inside a story that is currently unfolding before our eyes on an hourly basis. Based on numerous exclusive interviews conducted by the author--many of them conducted on-site in Belize--the author introduces us to a motley crew of interesting characters that McAfee has surrounded himself with. With respect to McAfee himself, the author does a great job portraying a complex man in a fair and accurate way. This is a must read for anyone who wants to understand how McAfee went from software tycoon to fugitive.

Great book, definitely worth the money. The reviewer who stated this is a 15 minute read is incorrect. I'm a fast reader and this occupied at least an hour of my time. Wired has a few free articles about him on their website that give you some flavor, but this ebook is way more interesting.

I saw this on the news and wondered what the whole story was. This tells it all in great detail: beginning, middle and insane end. McAfee is Kurtz, gone up the river and gone mad.

This is journalism at it's best: superbly written, great tempo and mind-blowingly weird. While everyone else tries to report the McAfee saga from the sidelines, Davis, it turns out, has been in on this for 6 months, with all kinds of exclusive access to McAfee. He provides clear answers and insightful context to what's going on. That's what's been missing from other coverage, and that's why you need to read this. I'm surprised it's not called, "The Untold Story of John McAfee."

The author makes it feel as if you're in the jungle with madman McAfee (it's creepy), but he also explores what has led to the madness. It's a fascinating book - an in-depth look behind a big news story is something rare and this one is a great read.

I think the best stories and films are TRUE.This is a good read of a life that is a work in progress. Josh Davis is a solid journalist and author and his subject is a tormented man on the run.
