I was so excited to read this book.
I love controversial whistle-blowing. Plus I’ve always been very curious of the inner workings of Wiki Leaks: How are leaks submitted anonymously? How is a leaker’s identity kept private?
But Inside WikiLeaks was a bit disappointing. It was much more focused on the absurdities and alleged arrogance of WikiLeak’s founder Julian Assange than of Wiki Leaks itself. I didn’t think I was signing up to read a bitch-fest. Boo.
The book contained enough interesting information on the leaks themselves (such as the Scientology Handbooks and the Iraq War Logs) for me to give it a 3/5, but be warned: this book is more bitter memoir than compelling, political non-fiction.
