Review of Inside the Spam Cartel Posted

Amazon.com just posted my five star review of Inside the Spam Cartel. From the review:

"Reading 'Inside the Spam Cartel' (ITSC) is like watching a racing car crash; you're horrified to see it happen, but you can't take your eyes off it. ITSC exposes spam from the point of view of the 'enemy' -- a spammer who claims 'you need to be ruthless in this industry if you want to make any money at it' (p. 132). This book is an absolute must-read for anyone trying to combat spam, especially policy makers who think passing laws with clever names makes any difference."

I loved that this book was written from the spammer's perspective. It's similar to the 1997 groundbreaking book Maximum Security, also written by an "anonymous" author bringing light to the underground.
