The New York Times best seller. Technological advances have benefited our world in immeasurable ways, but there is an ominous flipside. Criminals are often the earliest and most innovative adopters of technology, and modern times have led to modern crimes. Today's criminals are stealing identities, draining online bank accounts, and wiping out computer servers.

A bit like being dragged out by your partner for a walk in the rain - not entirely un-pleasant and ultimately good for you but you wished you hadn't said yes.

Some incredible information and startling revaltions. A long book which I persevered with in the hope I would enjoy it more but I didn't. It felt like the word count had been deliberately bolstered by the use of lists, many times a generic description would have sufficed; by the over use of figures, stats, metrics, percentages etc, the messages lost their value and meaning quite early on; I couldn't connect with the narrator's voice - can't put my finger on it so like my other comments are just my take.

In Alan Partridge: Nomad, Alan dons his boots, windcheater and scarf and embarks on an odyssey through a place he once knew - it's called Britain - intent on completing a journey of immense personal significance. Diarising his ramble in the form of a 'journey journal', Alan details the people and places he encounters, ruminates on matters large and small and, on a final leg fraught with danger, becomes not a man (because he was one to start off with) but a better, more inspiring example of a man.

Totally cringworthy from start to finish. Loosely based on Alpha Papa so not all new.
