I was hoping this book would provide more of a conclusion on how to talk to strangers effectively. instead I see a choice, either treat people suspiciously and risk alienating them, or take them at face value and hope they aren't miss matched. it sure would be nice if there was a way to get people to respond in a more predictable manner that is also friendly.

the more I listened to this book, the more I became committed to abandoning concepts of honour, and that I SHOULD judge myself on merits of dignity, instead. the editing seemed poor, there were abrupt pauses, that seemed unnatural and out of place, which made the experience even worse.

Loved it

I had just finished Public Record, and listening to this was a perfect next step. funny as I picked them up in reverse order. While Permanent Record recounts Edwadd Snowden's history and experiences up to 2013, Tools and Weapons covers much technological history and brings us up to where we are today, in 2019.

narration is garbage

sounded terrible

most of it sounded like she was reading an encyclopedia. its hard to believe this was a book about her recent history. there were moments she was passionate, and i wish she was able to maintain that energy throughout more of the book. while i was familiar with most of the campaign, there were things that I learned.
