5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely superb piece of hacker history, 13 Mar 2009

2600 magazine is always an entertaining and informative read, and this long awaited compendium of articles is equally good. If you're familiar with 2600 then you probably own a copy already.

Inside this book you'll find first hand reports from those involved in many of the events that have been poorly reported and distorted by "experts" elsewhere (such as the Kevin Mitnick case, covered by books like Takedown and Cyberpunk). There's also a fascinating slice of computer history showing the evolution of the Internet from geek toy to mainstream business tool.

For the techies there are plenty of explanatory articles, including the best technical description of GSM I've seen anywhere. There are also plenty of laugh-out-loud hacker stories.

This is not a "how to break into xxx" book, it's a book about real hackers, and it is superb value for money. If you have the slightest interest in computer security you should own it.
