Publisher's Summary

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.

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

Interesting!!

I had a bit of a understanding of the dark web starting this series but I learned so much! Fascinating. Also in answer to the question if we all had anonymity would be be good or bad...I'm guessing bad.

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.

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

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.

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.

Dangerous Information

This is not the kind of information allowed in a police state. Amazon will not be allowed to keep this up long. Download it now, and copy it to a secure location. Insiders at Audible say this series is scheduled for deletion.

Hated the narrator's voice!

I stopped listening after only 15 minutes because the narrator pronounces his r's like w's and it made it difficult to take him seriously. Not trying to be mean, but he sounded exactly like Elmer Fudd from Looney Tunes. I kept focusing on him saying things like "weally weiwd" (really weird) and "look in the miwwow" (mirror) and couldn't concentrate on the rest. Sorry!
