InterestingReally weird sorry This guy was nuts and I m surprised he is still alive, if he actually is He needs help.
As someone who has followed this case for around a month now, I found Joshua Davis Wired single to be the best source of information regarding John s background and his history in Belize.I have been following the story of John s run from the Belizian government since it was first reported that he was wanted for questioning in the murder of his neighbor The story was full of anecdotes about his eccentric millionaire drug fiend s run form the law and all of it seemed just crazy enough to be true.I [...]
If this was fiction, I would scream bloody genius If this was a hundred percent truth also, but I d worship McAfee instead of worshipping Joshua Davis Reality though it somewhere in between I am ready to believe that John McAfee has crumbled upon the weight of his own fortune and power, but some of these chapters are so over the top, it s hard to believe McAfee would ever have come out alive You can t live this life at that age and walk away unscathed every time.There is a crazy, broken down mil [...]
What a crazy rideA presumably factual rambling account of the rise and fall of John McAfee An interesting early mover in the technology industry What s left entirely unclear is whether or not in addition to his psychoses and drug abuse, was he also a capable technologist or just a huckster.I think I would ve enjoyed this much if it included some interviews or input from other software developers who worked closely with him.If nothing else it will leave you with some comfort that money is not ev [...]
This is, hands down, the craziest story I have ever read, and it s all true John McAfee has certainly lead an interesting life, and all of his achievements seem to stem from his paranoia from developing some of the first anti virus software to trying to become the police in a small town in Belize A real look into one of the computer world s most interesting character, this is a recommended read And if you can t get enough from this story, feel free to follow all the latest drama here whoismcafee [...]
Very interesting story about a strange troubled man who developed antivirus software making millions He became a drug addict and yoga specialist He lost millions in 2009 during the market crash and moved to his paradise in Belize and became very paranoid He is currently on the run having been charged with the murder of his neighbor.At this point in time we don t really know if he killed his neighbor Reading his story you realize the fine line between brilliance and madness It was a quick enjoyab [...]
Brilliantly written An excellent story and almost gonzo piece of journalism, only prevented by the author s metaphorical yardstick between himself and McAfee s world Not that you can blame him, even the criminally insane wouldn t want to go any further into this almost real world heart of darkness than a casual visit A very enjoyable read definitely worth the price of a cup of coffee and the time it would take to drink it.
Man, that John McAfee was an interesting man and he clearly had some problems The book an single longform reporting that is a little longer than can normally fit in a magazine wells displays McAfee s mental problems and his huckster confidence The report ends a little too abruptly for my liking.
Very interesting Wired article about John McAfee, founder of McAfee anti virus computer protection The story reads like a novel but the reality is, this is non fiction Some crazy stuff I d like to see a follow up article maybe there has been one since the brouhaha with shooting the neighbor s dogs I haven t heard how that all resolved and where Mr McAfee is now.
This was a very quick read, about 2 hours or so, however it was fascinating The man is truly crazy I want to follow the story as it unfolds and plan to through the author who is still in contact with McAfee as he is on the run Amazing how such a brilliant mind can snap so completely.
A glimpse into John McAfee s rollercoaster life Who knew that this anti virus exec was so messed up It s hard to believe some of what he s told the Joshua Davis since so much is really intense, but it would make a great film.
Kindle Singles are the most addictive product since the Dorito itself, first of all.McAfee strikes me as a damaged person, to say the least This is a page turning account of a 21st century Col Kurtz.
Given the subject matter, this could have been a good book, but the writing was poor It s just a long article that jumps around in an illogical manner.
It reads like the script of an over the top drama sitcom and it s hard to believe its all mostly true Guy sounds off his nut.
John McAfee, is paranoid, 62 and in the Belize jungle.
Wow, this is one crazy millionaire
Entertaining story If true, then McAffe s claims of being drug free are delusional Worth the 1.00 price for the entertainment value, but I question its authenticity.
Very light not that good
Brief but crazy Definitely read.
John McAfee is an odd, damaged man I haven t followed the story too much before reading this but its truly stranger than fiction.
McAfee a genius indeed, however he seems to prefer living his life in his delusions rather than rejoin reality
Paints a good picture of what happens when you have money and have mental issues.
A fascinating account into the live of such an eccentric character.
Obviously, all the money in the world didn t help One screwed up man.
