    Inside

    I got this and Zoe Quinn's book at the same time and read this first and then Zoe's account.
    The author makes it clear where he stands on the Gamergate issue, but the title of the book can be quite misleading. He was inside gamergate as in he sees himself as part of Gamergate. Not as in he was inside the vile gamergate IRCs developing plans to attack Zoe relentlessly. The fact that he tosses out all the evidence Zoe presents in her book without presenting any counter-evidence OR saying Oh they didn't mean it like that, it was just friendly bantz! and spouts the common talking points (Oh this is not about Zoe this is about stifling free speech!) through shifting the goal posts is telling.
    I finished it and afterwards I honestly thought this was the worst book I have read yet. Inside Gamergate: A Social History of the Gamer Revolt If you want a surface level and one sided recount of part of gamergate, this is your book. The author seems to lack any insight into their or the movement's motivations, and generally sticks to the established reactionary narrative of the movement. Inside Gamergate: A Social History of the Gamer Revolt Very pro gamergate

    Not a good book in any case. Waste of my time reading this. Don't bother reading this piece of garbage. Inside Gamergate: A Social History of the Gamer Revolt I have always heard about Gamergate through the media/Wikipedia/etc but never actually seen any material from the other side of the argument.
    It was an interesting read and nice to see the controversy from another perspective. Inside Gamergate: A Social History of the Gamer Revolt Possibly the best book that has been written about the entire shit-show. Inside Gamergate: A Social History of the Gamer Revolt

    This book exists to record, for posterity, the events of Gamergate from the perspective of someone within Gamergate. There is a real danger that, what with the media bias against Gamergate, that the other side - the right side - will not get recorded. In the future, anyone looking back is likely to encounter an entirely one-sided version of events from people who have been acting very shadily. As a participant in Gamergate, that worries me. As a historian, that worries me. As someone who cares about truth, fairness and accuracy, that worries me. Inside Gamergate: A Social History of the Gamer Revolt
