An insightful 10-part documentary by Technology journalist, Geoff White (Channel 4 News).
I learnt a lot.
1. The birth of the dark web
2. The untold story of the dark web
3. Bitcoin’s days are numbered
4. How not to buy a gun on the dark web
5. Hackers for hire
6. The virus kingpin
7. Cyber crime Inc.
8. The child porn paradox
9. A dark force for good
10. Anonymity on trial
Found everything brilliant except part 10 (34 minutes); a group of knowledgeable people discuss anonymity and the dark web. Compared to what preceded it, this episode was rather dull.

Is there anything you would change about this book?
Audio quality was somewhat poor, especially in certain interviews. I'd describe it as mobile-phone grade recording. Overall, I felt it was a good first introduction to the issues hosted on the Dark Web. However, it is also highly sensationalised, which is somewhat ironic considering episode 9 features an interview about whistleblowing which details how people are less likely to approach journalists who simply write "DARK WEB BAD!", which is almost exactly what is happening in this series. I would recommend the series to those wanting an overview of the negative aspects of the Dark Web, but if you want more technical information and a balanced view of the non-insidious activities which take place, look elsewhere.
