'Online with Kevin Mitnick: The inside story of the great cyberchase'. Yes, it's the Mitnick v. Shimomura bout from the other corner, with journalist Jonathan Littman as Mitnick's second.

'Online with Kevin Mitnick: The inside story of the great cyberchase'. Yes, it's the Mitnick v. Shimomura bout from the other corner, with journalist Jonathan Littman as Mitnick's second. Based on extensive telephone interviews with Mitnick while he was on the run, this is an interesting counterpoint to Shimomura's egotistical tome (Takedown: the Pursuit and Capture of Kevin Mitnik, America's Most Wanted Man). It also downplays Shimomura's role in the affair while raising some searching questions about his affiliations with covert agencies. All in all, Littman's account paints a more sympathetic picture of Mitnick, and probably gives a better insight into his motivations.
