Customers who bought this item also bought
''Mitnick's sense of humor is evident as he recounts his adventures . . . For those interested in computer history, Ghost in the Wires is a nostalgia trip to the quaint old days before hacking (and hackers) turned so malicious and financially motivated.'' --New York Times
''It's the piquant human element that really animates this rollicking memoir of high-tech skullduggery . . . The considerable charm of this nonstop caper saga lies in seeing the giant, faceless bureaucracies that rule and regulate us unmasked as assemblages of hapless people dancing to a plucky con man's tune.'' --Publishers Weekly
''A lucid, brightly written tale for both techies and lay readers.'' --Kirkus Reviews --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

It's a journey book, so far if you would think to solicit motivation or so called wisdom here, you didn't find it pal, although it blows your mind with his social engineering tricks that he used to deceived people.
This book is all about Kevin Mitnick and his life around computers, phones, life tragedies, imprisonment, cyber crime.
The language seems easy, and acquainted with easy vocabulary so it's to comprehend.
Although some techincal terms might baffle you.
P.S. : This book is for computer geeks and computer hacking enthusiasts, if cyber security didn't intrigue you i'd request not to buy this book
A must read for all those techies interested in Hacking(although, the book doesn't provides any guide for hacking, it gives an inside story of life of the hacker :) ).

However this book blows away the misinformation and media hype surrounding the story and is told in a thrilling and sometime humorous way.
From the start of the book it grabs the reader and won`t let go. Both fast paced and informative, it takes the reader from Kevin`s beginnings as a fan of magic tricks and magicians, to Ham radio and of course telephones and networks. If you've heard of Kevin Mitnick i guarantee you have not heard the truth. This book clears up the myths (He can whistle into a telephone and launch a nuclear missile from NORAD) and explains that not all hackers are in it for the money.
Buy,beg,borrow this book.......Then check your computer security.
My book of the year 5/5
Thank you Kevin and good luck in the future
