Was hoping for a lot more

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.
