Whilst it isn't about hardware hacking per se, it's a great collection of experiences and memories which are invaluable for anyone looking to manufacture electronics, or anyone interested in that area.
It's written very well and comes with plenty of photos, and the book itself is really nice too.

As an open hardware developer I loved the first nine chapters. Bunnie shares all of his trials and experiences offering many valuable lessons about designing hardware which he learned the hard way. He goes further than most and gets into laptop, phone and FPGA adventures where as many of us have not ventured passed simple microcontroller projects. The book is easy to follow as it is loaded with stories, people and factories from around the world.
"The Hardware Hacker's" final chapter blew my mind. Bunnie dives into H1N1 virus compared to computer viruses, analyzing DNA sequences with UNIX CLI tools, decompiling protein sequences and patching our genome. These topics are often explained by biologists, but it was much easier to absorb when the biology was explained with hardware analogies.
Show China has amazing independent resources and innovations.
Kinda scary that we don't do more like this (like the ol' Ham-Fests that existed years ago)
