    I like the approach this book takes - examining a certain aspect of various campaigns. I've found that technique to be helpful in technical matters, i.e., seeing how 4-5 different API clients handle authentication. Interesting material, good stuff.

    Contains interesting bits about his concept of "sovereign obligations". Reminded me a bit of Connectography when it discussed weakening of national borders especially with regarding to Internet-based crime.
