Format: Paperback
Daniel comes across as a tit and the fact that his editor let this go to print defies belief. The more he tries to vilify Assange, the more you start to like Assange. His gripes are what you would expect from someone brought up to chew their food, brush their teeth and tuck their shirts into their underpants; Assange ate his Ovaltine. Assange didn't want to bribe a train conductor; Assange broke a wire; Assange didn't pay me enough attention; Daddy, I mean, Assange was hard to please. This book is unbearable and I didn't finish it. It was an anally retentive written version of the Jeremy Kyle show. In the end you will want to a) slap Daniel b) slap his mother c) slap his publishers and d) ask trees for forgiveness. A sulky, bitter, badly written book which was used to launch his (failed) Openleaks endeavour. Avoid.

My motivation in reading this book was to learn about Julian Assange. This is the third book related to him that I have read, the other two being: The Most Dangerous Man in the World: The Explosive True Story of the Lies, Cover-Ups, and Conspiracies He Exposed and Julian Assange: The Unauthorised Autobiography.

Whilst undoubtedly I did learn more about Assange, gaining that knowledge came at the price of having to wade through this book. My appreciation of this book decreased with each chapter that I read. In the end it was all I could do to finish it!

It has been written by Assange's right-hand man in the operation of Wikileaks, for three years from 2007 - 2010, until Domscheit-Berg was suspended by Assange from Wikileaks. You'll see then that the author has an axe to grind.

If you think of what it would be like to read only one party's account of an unhappy marriage that led to a bitter divorce, you would develop an understanding of how this book reads and how it makes the reader feel. Bitterness, endless blaming of the other party and accounts of petty and trivial occurrences are rife in this book. You can hardly read a page without there being some dig at Assange. One of the most petty accounts related to Assange allegedly using up all of Domscheit-Berg's Ovaltine, which he had a yen for at the time. I mean really do we need to read about this?

The Wikileaks revelations were a major public service to the world, especially the Collateral Murder video. Julian Assange's fan-club will mostly loathe this book and its author. Assange has a messianic complex and his loyal supporters will probably share his view that those in the Wikileaks organisation who criticise Assange are apostates. But this book is a superb and very honest account of the history of Wikileaks and it places Assange in proper perspective, giving full credit to him for his vision and his contribution. Contrary to what others have said, the criticisms of Assange are mild but important and not by any means petty or spiteful. It's a better book than Assange's own unauthorised autobiography, the book he began to write but then refused to complete (and the publisher never got his advance back so published it anyway).

Anyone who wants to understand the role of an organisation like Wikileaks and its strengths and weaknesses ought to read Domscheit-Berg's book. The questions he raises at the end of the book remain important and worrying given that they are raised by a person who has been closely involved in the running of the organisation and ought by rights to know the answers: What is Wikileaks's financial situation? What have donations been used for? Who decides how the money is allocated? What did Julian mean when he reportedly told the Guardian that he had a financial interest in how and when the diplomatic cables were published? More important is the wider question - after the Wikileaks revelations has the world actually changed, and does the public actually have any influence over its law-breaking political and military leaders?

I could stand only 100 pages, even it was too much! It's really boring. Julian moved into my house, he was sick, he had white trousers, we were both sick, we ate sushi together... He is a that kind of a guy, he is that he is this.... We did this, that, those.... It is a kind of diary indeed. All about author's personal feelings and experience when he was working in Wikileaks. To say the truth, I am not so interested in that!!!

was lent to me by a friend, the most boring book I ever got to never finish,
one nerd carping about another far brighter nerd, like the kid in class who always came second and harboured a grudge at the one above who always came first.
For a catty tell all, read a Kitty O Shea novel, far much more fun. This guy sounds like the Robin who wanted to be Bat Man but never could be, you feel like saying to him 'move on get a life and stop imitating Assange!'
