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 think I would've enjoyed this much more if it included some interviews or input from other software developers who worked closely with him.
If nothing else it will leave you with some comfort that money is not everything and indeed not even a reasonable guarantee of happiness.
I love how Davis seemed to get into McAfee's head -- and helped me understand the intense overwhelm and constant anxiety this crazy man feels. I found myself alternating between feeling repulsion at this wrecked, evil guy, to (weirdly) feeling sorry for him. Since I was following the breaking news story on CNN, getting the full story was fascinating. For those of us reading from a comfortable couch, the story revealed the intense, outrageous and depressing stuff going on out there just beyond the white sandy beaches. Certainly every time I start up my computer and see the little McAfee icon letting me know that my laptop is safe from danger, I'll wonder how much danger McAfee is actually creating and how much danger he's in.
It is a quick read and is highly recommended if you want to know about the current situation surrounding the former founder of one of the biggest anti-virus software programs in the world.
