A for Anonymous: How a Mysterious Hacker Collective Transformed the World

The illustrated, inside story of the legendary hacktivist group's origins and most daring exploits.

A for Anonymous shows how a leaderless band of volunteers successfully used hacktivism to fight for the underdog, embarrass their rich and powerful targets--from Sony and Paypal to the Church of Scientology and Ferguson Police Department--all in the name of freedom of speech and information. Their exploits blurred the distinction between "online" and "reality," and help shape our contemporary world.
