Although the topic of technology and hacking doesn’t really appeal to me, I’m intrigued by the author’s raw and humorous account of her real life events. I might have to check this one out! Thanks for the insight :)

At first I thought that this was just another 'self-improvement' non fictional book from reading the title alone. I was wrong. From this review, 'Bad Choices Make Good Stories' is a novel that should be read by people who love 'crude' stuff. Thanks for the review.

Very interesting life the author lived and very explosive views; an explosive book. Great review.

I don't think this book is for me, because I don't like memoirs. Still the book sounds like a very interesting, events-packed novel. Thanks for the review.

From the review, Oliver Markus Malloy's Bad Choices Make Good Stories sounds very compelling. However, for me, dark humour is no humour and the book's "no-holds-barred" tale style will definitely not appeal to me. I enjoyed the review, I think it is beautifully crafted.

I don't think the darkness and harsh language is a good fit for me. I probably won't be getting this one, but excellent review.

Sounds interesting - especially the character development which the hacker seems to go through.

So Donna comes into Oliver's life and he sees the light. I'd love to read more about Oliver's story.
