With the exception of perhaps one paragraph, which was sexually-explicit in its description of Cohen's temporary sex.com website in the late 90s, I would recommend this book for an enjoyable read.
You don't have to be into technology and domain names to enjoy this book. If you're into crime books or law, you'll find this story fascinating.
The persistence of Gary Kremen against all the odds and formidable opponents in the form of Cohen and Network Solutions should be an inspirations to many who have much smaller battles to fight. If you are right....keep fighting.
I couldn't put the book down until I had finished it.
