    Thoroughly enjoyed this, read it in one sitting - couldn't put it down. Brilliant to see this story from the AFP side. Thoroughly enjoyed this, read it in one sitting - couldn't put it down. Brilliant to see this story from the AFP side.

    Read years ago before I started in technology, good to see Australian hackers going for it.

    Basically Apro is super butthurt and would like everyone to know about ow awesome he is. the first 5 chapters are about how he started setting up the computer crime unit, 6-14 are about phoenix, and everything after that is 'I did other stuff too then they fired e but I'm srsly the best' 'cmon. Decide what the book is. I it's the hunt for phoenix it would have had less about apro and more about phoenix, more detail of the interviews, trial and phoenixes behavior afterwards.

Decide what the book is. I it's the hunt for phoenix it would have had less about apro and more about phoenix, more detail of the interviews, trial and phoenixes behavior afterwards. If it was about the establishment of computer crime it would have had more about the bitmapper case. This is about Apro and his big ego. Even the language used in the book is so... self congratulatory. He goes on about all this work he did and barly acknowledges the efforts of those he recruited to help him. there are many informants and friends who played a large role in the intelligence gathering and he never acknowledges their role and the importance of them in all this. The language used when he asks them to help is never 'asked' or 'requested' or any other word which would acknowledge a favor, but rather words that imply an order. 'got'(read as 'ordered' rather than 'convinced') and 'told' His family gets a mention. That he has them. Like... 3 times his family was mentioned? This is an intense, years long process. Like his family didn't play some part is supporting him through it emotionally. Can't even devote a sentence to that, just their existence. His wife gets a sentence about her existence in reference to a shooting attempt; his 2 daughters get a sentence in reference to why he declined a job offer. If this was about phoenix that would be fine but it's blates about apro. He devotes whole chapters to his career and whole paragraphs to why he chose the afp but he can't give a sentence of acknowledgement to his friends and his family? All up it's just... such a masturbation project. Makes for an annoying read. If you're interested in phoenix from the perspective of the guy who caught him, read chapters 6-14 and ignore the rest.
