In 2016, one of the giants of modern journalism fell: Gawker Media, infamous for saying what other outlets wouldn't say, was sued for publishing Hulk Hogan's sex tape, lost the case and went bust. After countless other lawsuits it seemed that Gawker had finally run out of luck. But luck had nothing to do with it. Peter Thiel, PayPal founder and billionaire investor, had masterminded the whole thing.

If you enjoy good narration then you will not enjoy this book. You will frequently find your self repeating sentences in your mind with the emphasis placed in the correct place. Disappointing given that it is narrated by the author.

It is an interesting story but it could be told in 4 hours rather than over 10!
