5.0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT, 16 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Deep Web for Journalists - Comms, Counter-Surveillance, Search (Kindle Edition)
Although written primarrily for journalists this book is an excellent read for anyone, like me, who wants to learn about and access access to deep cyberspace, that mysterious area of the net where governments, industry and other institutions wish to hide information and data they don't want available for general public viewing.

The book is also excellent value for money because the autohrs offer free updates enabling readers to keep abreast of on-going technological development which render information which is up-to-date today obsolete tomorrow.

Thank you for this truly brill introduction.

5.0 out of 5 stars Everything you need as a modern Journalist, 20 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Deep Web for Journalists - Comms, Counter-Surveillance, Search (Kindle Edition)
This book is primarily written for journalists, but there are many other people who would find what is in this book useful. It goes over security first, such things as encryption, different services you can use, etc. It then outlines the 'deep web' (Tor network) in some detail. However, one of the best things is the list of resources at the end of the book. It is truly an exhaustive and very useful list of information dumps on the web that i never even knew existed.
Glad I bought this book. Would recommend it to amateur or professional journalists, whatever sector you are covering.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent!!!, 12 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Deep Web for Journalists - Comms, Counter-Surveillance, Search (Kindle Edition)
I'm not a journalist but have a vested interest in this topic. Because of the scope of the subject you would think that the book would be full of technological jargon, codes and words that you would stare blankly at. WRONG. It's written in a format that is easily understood and digested and sprinkled with touches of humour.

With regards to keeping you safe and hidden when online, in my opinion it puts you at ease. The topics covered are concise and all instructions are easy to follow. As this is a Kindle edition most of the links worked first time. Those that didn't, worked after another attempt.

The section on smartphones I found fascinating as well as a few little tips and tricks to maintain the integrity of your laptop when travelling.

Well worth the purchase price and with the offer of additional updates it really is a must have. Can we have more of the same please?

Solid advice for exploring the 'deep web' without accidentally going into the 'dark web'. A practical tool for ensuring your online privacy.
