Just finished Conspiracy, the book about Thiel’s secret plan to take down Gawker, and came away rather disappointed and underwhelmed.

I guess the disappointment mostly came from the overrated insight porn that the author thought readers would appreciate, but it was underwhelming because so much bluster and meandering was generated over what seemed to me like a pretty straightforward issue. I want to get to the sea, but I don't necessarily want to follow every little twist and turn of the river.
