Inside Wiki-leaks by Daniel Berg
Written by a partner at wiki-leaks during both it's rise to fame and it's fall out of favor. Daniel Berg promises to tell the story of the inter-workings of the activist organization known as wiki-leaks. This book tells the story from Berg's point of view. It is intended to give an average person an intimate look into the world of Julian Assange and Wiki-leaks. It begins by introducing it's author and looking at his life leading up to his brief involvement with Wiki-leaks. We are then lead through some of the key releases made by the site. This includes diplomatic cables, military documents, and all that lies in between. Although a potential reader may think this book is something to get excited about, it's not. It does not deliver on it's promises. Instead it looks at Berg's personal life and the "disrupt" that Wiki-leaks caused to it. It has the feeling of being written by two separate authors. The first praises the organization, and the latter questions its every move. There is also quite a bit of meaningless filler that deals with Assange's personal life. There are pages upon pages that discuss what he ate, how he dressed, and what his daily routine was, etc. All this completely useless writing leads to Berg sounding more like a spurred lover than the professional colleague he is so desperately trying to be. In my opinion this whole book is quite sad. Berg had the chance to tell people about a revolutionary organization. He had the chance to provoke change. Instead he wasted his time on a book that really belongs in the gossip column of a trashy newspaper.

Basically, domscheit-berg's girlfriend was an informer, and the others with WikiLeaks gleaned onto this, and his attraction to her precluded any reasonable thought. [Such happens, but is the major reason this item should be ignored!]
