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. Mitnick portrays himself as worth rooting for, a savvy master rodent in a cat-and-mouse game, grinning past his whiskers as he stole the cheese from under the nose of the helpless fat cats.

Fascinating and filled with insights. I strongly believe that one can learn a great deal about protecting themselves once they understand how another one perpetrates the crime. I now see this made about as much sense as arresting Dean Martin for public drunkenness.

Neither of them could stop themselves. Neither was doing any real harm. And, in both cases, watching them struggle with their obsessions was hugely entertaining. Terse and snappy, it reads like Raymond Chandler and provides detailed insight into a time in computer history that already seems quaint. Kevin Mitnick was and is a true Internet pioneer.

Shelves: memoirs-biographies , non-fiction Ive always wondered why hackers hack. Is it for the kick it gives them or for personal gain, or perhaps a combination of the two? For this reason I was attracted to this memoir of Kevin Mitnick, someone Id never heard of but a man who became the most wanted hacker of his time, chased for years until his eventual capture by the FBI. In an early example of how these activities helped him, he talked a bus driver into providing him with some information and then sought out a supply of discarded but unused tickets in order to obtain free bus travel throughout the Los Angeles area.
