Description

From sex trafficking and fraud to government secrets and anonymous hacking groups, this definitive exploration and exposé of the dark web goes where no documentary has gone before. 

The anonymous and lawless online environment of the Dark Web makes headlines on a daily basis. It touches all of our lives, without our knowledge, in many different ways. But where do the myths end and reality begin? 

Tech writer and broadcaster Geoff White (Channel 4 News) wants to find out. He casts an investigatory light on the dark underworld of the internet. We join him on a shocking tour of its secrets, revealing corporate hackers, paedophile rings, fraud on an international scale, conspiracy theories, drug dealers, gun runners, spies and specialist police investigators. 

Driven by undercover recordings, anonymous contributors and expert interviews, this in-depth, journalistically-rigorous current affairs investigation leaves no online stone unturned in its quest for the truth.

Missed the mark

This is a very light overview of the topics covered. The author seems to lack the technical knowledge and tends towards sensationalism to make up the difference. As a technology professional I found parts of this reporting inaccurate and overall rather dull. I wouldn't recommend. I would recommend you listen to the Darknet Diaries for a more interesting take on similar topics that is focused on real stories with accurate information and no sensationalism.

Interesting, intriguing foray into the Dark Web

A very fascinating series about The Dark Web, who's using it, why it's important to know about, and some of its history. Discusses other topics such as cryptocurrencies. Short episodes of about 20 minutes.

If only I could actually listen to it

Love the content and bought it immediately after listening to sample. Unfortunately, it seems like it's not compatible with the audible app. Cannot listen to it from my phone at all and can’t return it either. $15 for an audible book that you cannot listen to? Would rather buy a brick.

Unable to listen or download.

I'm not sure if it's just me, but I "purchased" this series for free as an Audible member. It shows up in my library on web, but I cannot view episodes, play or download. It does not show up in my Android app at all after logout/login, killing the app & restarting, etc.

Some basic facts wrong

Ep1, very beginning, Tor and Dark Web are conflated. Except the ability to "host" a "website" came long after Tor project, and was not part of the project. Such "websites" really started popup when p2p, or perhaps even as late as bitcoin tech got public adoption.
Tor only allows anonymous browsing not hosting. W/o hosting ability , there's no dark web.
I'm not sure it's the lack of tech knowledge or today's standard MSM practice of sensationalism caused such - bottom line, I would stop at ep1.

All episodes didn’t download

While the episodes that downloaded were good, not all of them did download so I found myself listening to small blips of information about the “next episode” but couldn’t actually listen to it

BEST BEGINER GUIDE

I was always curious about the term dark web. This audio book is surely one of the best method to get to know about the origin and all the myths and facts about dark web.
It's free so must read for an enthusiast

Far better than anticipated

I was already somewhat familiar with the dark web but this well balanced and informative read really showed me how little I knew.

Eye Opening

So much info in so little time. Though this was released almost 2 years ago, it's quite sobering.
However, it needs to be carefully put into the wide perspective of "the grand scheme of things"...
Otherwise, it is downright terrifying.

Informative

It is presented as a "podcast " or audio/radio show covering different topics about the Dark Web. I was totally unaware this existed so it's been quite fascinating to listen to this work.

I have to say this wasn't 1st on my list to read, but I finally came back to it as I had a great curiosity re: the dark web. As another reviewer stated, I dont know why I waited so long to read this because its pretty mind blowing! I'm starting chapter 3 right now and its 1:45 am....I orginally started this thinking I would put in my earbuds and go to sleep before midnight.....
well, as it turned out...the author goes into great factual detail. So, my mind got too excited!! Sometimes you come across a non-fiction book that really grabs your attention, and 'The Dark Web' definitely falls into that category.
I turned the light back on, got out my sketchbook, and proceeded to learn a LOT about this subject. I AM going to make myself turn it off after the next chapter, but I can't resist to listen to one more!!
One last comment ~I've always been curious about this subject but would never Google it for fear of the unknown possibilities: viruses, laptop death, phone blowing up, being 'sucked in to the dark side'... ;)
After learning even the small amount from the 1st few chapters.....wow..there are normal people that have gone on there and have done so multiple times, even making purchases and have done no harm to anyone or anything. Case closed. I don't want to spoil anything in the book...I just was amazed about the different things that happened to be out there. (obviously, there are very DARK things out there). I hope you enjoy learning about this subject as much as I am!

Very Informative

Very informative. Investigator covered topics pertinent for one to gain an overall understanding of not only how the Dark Web works but also the nefarious ways it can be used. He also wove interviews throughout the book which added an insiders perspective. Upshot: Interesting, informative look at how the Dark Web is utilized for extreme evil, but also for the greater good.

Eye opening

I, like other people I know, know about the dark web and that there are really disturbing thing that go on there. This helped me understand some of the behind the scenes that goes on in the dark web. It was very interesting to hear different opinions and stories about the dark web and it was very easy to follow along and get lost in the book.

Great info about the dark web in good usefu detail

I really enjoyed the book the only thing I didn't like is it seemed like it was a documentary that they just put in audio so found myself wanting to look at the screen like I was watching a YouTube video or a TV show instead of listening to a book to just sit listen to the words and not the background noises and weird transition noises going from person to person that they are interviewing and the main narrator
