After reading the author’s blog, I wanted to read this book. John Robb’s writing style is lucid and makes me examine my knowledge and beliefs, even for points where I disagree with his conclusions. As a web developer, many of the points he makes about the changing role of the nation-state and the role of information are relevant beyond the scope of the book. I wa particularly struck by his comparisons between open-source software and startups as applied to global guerrilla groups. There are some interesting lessons to be learned and the book highlights the importance of multi-disciplinary approaches to global security.
