1
I chose A because the title interested me more than B.
2
America and defense was mentioned . That is what got me .
3
This title is more whimsical and inviting. I would read this title if it were available.
4
Option A has a playful ring to it that sounds professionally written.
5
This one sounds most interesting.
6
I feel that Option A provides a clearer sense of the book's thesis.
7
b is good
8
I love reading about experts on anything and this makes it sound interesting.
9
sounds a little better
10
It is more articulate sounding a title.
11
Option A sounds more interesting just from the title. Technical stuff can be fun also. You have to perceive it in a different way than boring and drab.
12
It caught my attention more
13
Sound more epic
14
best solution for police to easily catch the thieves
15
always useful
16
The main title rolls off the tongue better, and understanding what safety implies and entails (in cyberwar) is also helpful for giving context to the book.
17
This one interests me more because it puts hackers in a more positive light and I would want to know more about the "cyberwar".
18
I think the title of the book that I chose looks like a better title. The entire text of the title seems much better than the other option. It makes me want to read the book.
19
The title was a lot catchier.
20
This ine sounds a little bit better but not much.
21
Sounds the most interesting, to be honest.
22
Option B is a mess
23
Better book title.
24
A hopeful title. Makes the bad guys the good guys
25
Option a is a more interesting choice because it uses "action" words: call, defense, cyberwar.
26
First of all, this version sounds cooler. Second, it makes the hackers sound like the protagonists rather than a necessary evil. I like it a lot better this way.
27
It is a more interesting title. And 'war' in a title will always catch the eye.
28
I like both almost equally! But A mentions Cyberwar, rather than just identity theft.
29
Choice A sounds more adventurous and interesting and is even in line with the hacking events held in Vegas.

1
It makes an interesting case for hackers
2
It has a better descriptive title
3
Necessary makes it special and sets it apart
4
This title just makes more sense to me. It explains things better and makes sense of what it will take to be safe. The words are better explained as to what the book is about
5
Necessary Hackers: Keeping Us Safe in a Wired World
6
Hackers don't really have a good reputation. I associate them with unfair elections for example so describing them as necessary peaks my interest.
7
I would like to choose this book and it was so interesting to read.
8
Is a much better description for what the book is about.
9
I prefer Title B, because I like how the title portrays hackers as a useful part of society, instead of a detriment to society.
10
This one is the best.
11
Choice B has more broad and personal appeal than Choice A. (A seems to suggest defending the country in wartime). The message of the book cited in Choice B applies to everyone and at all times. Also, Choice B is in simple, jargon-free language, making it easily understood and accessible. The use of the word "necessary" is important; shows the vital role of hackers.
12
kinda explains that hackers are necessary
13
I think Necessary Hackers is a better title, and I even like the tag line better too. It sounds a little more polished and thought out than A.
14
Seems like a more positive realistic spin on the subject.
15
Better indication that this might be a good thing.
16
Necessary Hackers sounds a bit more realistic and not so complicated.
17
Choice B book was i would rather read in this task.
18
The title makes me understand better about this book in relation with hackers. If I saw this title in a book, I would keep it in mind and probably buy it.
19
The title sounds more compelling and would be more likely to draw me in
20
Hackers are taking the information without permission.
21
It is concise and to the point.
