Spam Wars: The Reviews

As they say in Italia:

Ma resta la necessità di acquisire un quadro chiaro e sintetico dei meccanismi dello spam (compito qui portato eccellentemente a termine), per essere coscienti di molti dei 'grigi' meccanismi della rete, e della loro, altrettanto adombrata economia.

PC Update Magazine (Australia)

PC Update is the monthly glossy magazine of the outstanding Melbourne PC User Group. The February 2005 issue contains a review by Book Reviews Editor, Major Keary. Among the nice things he has to say are:

This is a most significant contribution to the literature and deserves a wide audience, from general readers to legislators and corporate executives who should inform themselves on a serious and costly problem. It is an example of good technical communication about something that is more than a nuisance: spam has the potential for great damage, direct and collateral.

He sums up by saying:

A title that should be in libraries as a definitive text on spam.

"Aunty Spam's Net Patrol" (

Here's just a part of a review from Aunty Spam herself:

Anyone who is even remotely interested in the spam issue, how spammers work, why spammers spam, and, perhaps most importantly, how the rest of us are contributing to the problem, and what we can do about it, should run, not walk, to their closest bookstore or online bookseller to pick up a copy of Danny Goodman's outstanding Spam Wars.

Even the URL is flattering. Read the whole review.

"The Daily Report" (

Not a review per se, but Web design master Jeffrey Zeldman was the first to post a notice about Spam Wars. He also gives props to some deserving folks who helped with the effort. Oh yes, he encourages folks to buy the book for their aunts and uncles for the holidays. Excellent advice, I'd say, because I had them in mind while writing the book.
