Présentation de l'éditeur

There was always something unusual about John McAfee. The tech entrepreneur made a fortune from the antivirus software that bears his name, but he also spent years as a cocaine addict, spiritual guru and yoga expert. In 2009, after losing millions in the stock market crash, he decided to retire to the tiny Central American nation of Belize. That's when things really got weird. He started hanging out with killers, prostitutes, and pimps. He fell in love with a 17-year-old and surrounded his tropical compound with armed guards. In November 2012 his neighbor was found murdered. McAfee, who professed his innocence, fled the police and went into hiding.

WIRED's Joshua Davis had months of exclusive access to McAfee before his disappearance and was virtually the only journalist McAfee had contact with when he went on the lam. In this fascinating profile, Davis takes readers into McAfee's heart of darkness, a harrowing and jaw-dropping tale of ambition, paranoia, sex, and madness.

Ce n'est qu'un article, ou plutôt la compilation d'une série d'articles parus dans la presse.

Pas inintéressant, mais manquant profondément de recul.

So far, the reviews seem right on point. This is a very interesting read and well worth the $0.99 that it is selling for. It is a fascinating breaking story that keeps the reader engaged. It is well written and provides some very candid insights into the recent life of John McAfee. However, as others have noted, it is very short -- more like an extended article than a book -- I finished it in about 45 minutes and I think I read at a pretty average speed. It also leaves you hanging because the story is still very much in progress. I was shocked to find when I read the book, the closing accounts were less than a week old...talk about hot off the press.

I am not sure how this "breaking news" kindle book format will work on in the long run. I am willing to pay for great coverage of current events (which this books qualifies as), but it certainly has a short shelf life. If I bought this book after a major development occurred in the McAfee story, I would be disappointed.

Final thoughts: It is worth the money for a great story, but it has the feel of something rushed to press in order to scoop other writers.

I could not stop reading this fascinating glimpse inside a story that is currently unfolding before our eyes on an hourly basis. Based on numerous exclusive interviews conducted by the author--many of them conducted on-site in Belize--the author introduces us to a motley crew of interesting characters that McAfee has surrounded himself with. With respect to McAfee himself, the author does a great job portraying a complex man in a fair and accurate way. This is a must read for anyone who wants to understand how McAfee went from software tycoon to fugitive.

Great book, definitely worth the money. The reviewer who stated this is a 15 minute read is incorrect. I'm a fast reader and this occupied at least an hour of my time. Wired has a few free articles about him on their website that give you some flavor, but this ebook is way more interesting.

I saw this on the news and wondered what the whole story was. This tells it all in great detail: beginning, middle and insane end. McAfee is Kurtz, gone up the river and gone mad.

This is journalism at it's best: superbly written, great tempo and mind-blowingly weird. While everyone else tries to report the McAfee saga from the sidelines, Davis, it turns out, has been in on this for 6 months, with all kinds of exclusive access to McAfee. He provides clear answers and insightful context to what's going on. That's what's been missing from other coverage, and that's why you need to read this. I'm surprised it's not called, "The Untold Story of John McAfee."
