5.0 out of 5 stars Smartphones for activists - a "how to" guide, 19 Jun. 2014
This is an excellent and informative read regarding the rise of smartphones, what the risks are of existing systems, and an exploration of the possible alternatives. There are some excellent ideas for follow-up by individuals and organisations. A definite read!

Excellent readable book. Very useful for activists and others who dislike the near monopoly of the other operating systems. I would definitely recommend it to anyone.
