  • Although it gives some interesting perspectives, this book relies too much on silly sleights of hand to progress its argument, constructs which crumble the moment you stop to think about them. It's also written in an arrogant tone which is wearing - sometimes sneering and often perverse. A pamphlet that got out of control - so very repetitive.


  • It's a sobering perspective for anyone with a strong opinion about the Leveson Inquiry. Probably the strongest anti-Leveson piece of literature you're likely to find. However, as others have pointed out, logical sleights-of-hand are not in short supply. Regardless, it's a crucial lesser-known read for anyone looking to broaden their understanding of the 2011 Hacking Scandal and its impact on newspaper journalism.
