What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
This wasn't really a story of Spam Nation, more a look at a particular Russian spammer and Brian's detailed interaction with him.
I very much like and read Brian's website krebsonsecurity which is a treasure trove of really interesting and useful information. I bought this book based on Brian's superb security industry credentials, but was very unimpressed with this offering.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Not only would I recommend it to my Cyber Security Colleagues, I will and have recommended it to a number of technical & non-technical & Leadership professionals that can use the stories in Brian's book to put some context around many of the things we encounter everyday...anywhere from a DDOS attack, phishing email or stolen credit card numbers.
What did you like best about this story?
I enjoyed the level of detail that Brian was able to provide - you can't make this stuff up! It takes a great story teller to explain the technical crud and avoid putting your audience to sleep. Brian does a good job grabbing you, let go a few times, and then loops everything back around in the end.
Which scene was your favorite?
I really liked That he was crazy enough to travel overseas and meet some of these people...it's not for the faint of heart, and I will bet that Brian was much more nervous than he let on.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
unfortunately, I have a bit of a personal conection to a few chapters from the book...not with Mr. Krebs, although I have seen him at a couple industry events. My biggest reaction was more of - ahaaa, that is why this stopped happening, or "that explains a lot".
Any additional comments?
I did the kindle and audio versions, the audio was great, but I had to get past the Russian narratives, after a while, ey just became funny parts of the story...as They were probably meant to be.

Any additional comments?
I expected a wonky technology book but found myself caught up in the drama and colorful personalities of a virtual war that impacted all of our lives, though most knew little about. I was equally impressed with the narrator's ability to to switch between accents and reflect the personalities of the subjects involved. By far one of my favorite audiobooks to date.
