To help out, I'll suggest, read Domscheit-Berg's 'Inside Wikileaks'. Yes he has the most unfortunate name in the world, but he has a couple of things going for him - 1 his life is transparent 2 he has almost all of the former wikileaks staff behind him. 3 as it turns out he did not particularly turn on Assange as was widely reported, but rather Assange turned on his entire staff. Not so surprising if/when you begin to read deeply into Assange's checkered past. But because it is obviously personal and one sided, it is good to round out the reading session with a neutral party like Leigh and Harding's book "Wikileaks: Inside Julian Assange's War on Secrecy". No matter how you stack it, Assange's intimates usually turn out to be his enemies, and somehow that only seems to bring another wave of popularity to the white haired enigma.
