Customer Review

on 1 February 2004
Right from the beginning this book had me completely hooked. It is obvious the amount of research that has gone into this book, and it delivers exactly what it promises.
I had always hated the way the media had mis-used the word hacker, and if your interested in finding out what a true hacker is, then this is a must read.
Stephen Levy describes in detail the people that pioneered computing in the 50's, selling there souls to programming and living the hacker dream, to the hardware hackers, and finally the bedroom programmers writing games.
If your in anyway addicted to computers and want to know where it all started, or if your an open source advocate then this is a MUST read. BUY NOW!!!
