It was an interesting read, mostly for the subject matter. The writing itself wasn't spectacular--it's well edited, so you no glaring grammar or spelling errors like you'd see from bad fan fiction, but the organization and style don't really add much to make the material exciting.
Now I sincerely regret putting a few bucks in the author's pocket. Though he styles himself as a so-called "white hat," if you look at the public records on his most recent, prominent case, he's basically defending a copyright infringer by filing frivolous defamation lawsuits against the guy whose work was stolen because he had the audacity to publicly complain about his work being stolen. I would not be surprised if the California bar decides to bring sanctions against him for filing motions with no basis in fact or law.
I would never recommend that anyone steal someone else's copyrighted work, but if someone did pirate Carreon's work, and then sued him for complaining about it, I imagine the irony would be lost on him.
Moreover, Carreon's later dishonesty and lack of integrity makes me question how honest the contents of this book really was. We know from the public record who won, what evidence and arguments were presented, and what side the court came down on, but I no longer know whether to believe Carreon's version of events leading up to the case.Read more ›
You'll thank me silently at night.
I would advise all potential purchasers not to buy this book just in case the same thing happens to you.
I would not recommend this book.

Do not buy this book. There are other, better accounts of the Sex.com adventure, and Charles Carreon is a litigious jerk whose skin is as thin as his hair.Published on June 19, 2012 by Someday Maywe
