Format: Kindle Edition
As an anthology addict, but not a reader of Wired Magazine, I wasn't sure I would find enough in this collection of longform journalism to justify the cost. (It's free to Wired subscribers through the Wired site.) The verdict is in -- it's worth it.

This is a collection of some of the best stories from Wired's twenty year run, and you'd read similar stories in the New Yorker or Atlantic Monthly. It's a meaty selection -- in-depth articles by Steven Levy, Neal Stephenson, William Gibson, Chris Anderson, and more. It's fun reading some of the earlier pieces just to remind yourself how different it was only twenty years ago -- no internet for most of us, in the midst of a boom that seemed as if it would never end.

Amazon says the file size is 1107 KB, equivalent to 705 pages, but I tend to think B&N's numbers are a little closer at 757KB, which would make the book about 350-400 pages, and that seems about right. The articles are long, maybe twenty pages each, so that works out to the 400 page estimate. The articles are arranged by topic rather than chronologically, and that works fine. Just be warned -- once you start one of these articles, it will be hard to put it down until you've finished.

This really is the best of Wired. Some great articles from past issues all in one spot. Worth the money.
