Publisher's Summary

Andrew O'Hagan issues three bulletins from the porous border between cyberspace and the 'real world.'

'Ghosting' introduces us to Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, whose autobiography the author ghostwrites with unforeseen consequences.

'The Invention of Ronnie Pinn' finds the author using the identity of a deceased man to construct an entirely new one in cyberspace.

Finally, 'The Satoshi Affair' chronicles the strange case of Craig Wright, the Australian web developer who may or may not be the mysterious inventor of Bitcoin.

Three stories in this 1 book - enjoyable.

Three stories comprise this short book: one is about Julian Assange, the second is a figment of the author's created fake online profile Ronald Pinn - explaining how it is possible to create a fully functional identity online. Third story is about block-chain and bitcoin and its possible creator Craig Wright.

Really enjoyable and easy listen, definitely a go!
