“Domscheit-Berg speaks with the authority that few others posess.”
“For citizens around the globe who are attracted to WikiLeak’s promise of transparency but distressed by the illiberal excesses and reckless behavior of its founder, Domscheit-Berg provides an invaluable vision of a genuinely neutral technology for whistle-blowers. And he reminds us of the danger of concentrating power in the hands of one man, whose secretive organization became the mirror image of the powerful institutions he sought to oppose.”
—Jeffrey Rosen, The Washington Post --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
About the Author
DANIEL DOMSCHEIT-BERG, under the pseudonym Daniel Schmitt, was the
effective No. 2 at Wikileaks and the organization's spokesman and most public
face after Julian Assange. A computer scientist who worked primarily in IT security
for several multinational companies prior to devoting himself full-time to Wikileaks,
he remains committed to freedom of information and transparency on the internet.
He is currently working on a more transparent secret-sharing website called
OpenLeaks, developed by former WikiLeaks people, to be launched in 2011.

Top Customer Reviews
In addition to Domscheit-Berg's intense bias against Assange, this book adds his extremely poor writing skills. The book is riddled with typographical errors, sloppy, boring, and banal prose, and a tenth-grade level of writing. As far as an account of what the cover calls "My Time with Julian Assange at the World's Most Dangerous Website", left in the background are events such as the Scientology leaks (a very significant period of activity for Wikileaks as it took on the powerful Scientology organization), the German Toll Collect material, and the Afghan War Diaries (another major turning point for Wikileaks). Domscheit-Berg so intensely focuses on his personal conflict with Assange that he loses his ability to write much about the work of Wikileaks itself. As a result of his disgust with Assange and his inability to form coherent, convincing words, Domscheit-Berg has produced a book that is petty, completely one-sided, and in the end quite boring.
To write a book about Wikileaks that is boring is a perversely interesting accomplishment as there is nothing about the saga of Wikileaks and Julian Assange that most people would find boring. So I guess there's that.
