About the Author

Steven Hampton became interested in locks and electronics at an early age. At 14 he acquired a set of U.S. Air Force electronic training manuals and began building various transistor circuits by scalping radios and junkyard TVs. At 17 he was making his own lockpicks and was considered a master lockpicker, and by the time he was 18 he'd invented the magnetic padlock, which is still on the market today. After a stint in the navy, he studied digital electronics and worked in many technical fields. He also became interested in the martial arts, studying Tibetan White Crane kung fu, jujitsu and wing chun.

1.0 out of 5 stars this book is useless October 8, 1999
By Bill
Format:Paperback
The book covers nothing of lock picking, just the history of it. If I could go back in time I wouldnt have even borrowed the book from the library!

1.0 out of 5 stars waste of time and money March 23, 2011
Format:Paperback
the advance secrets for finger sensitivity is "YOGA" what a joke. he refers to a few locks, like the american lock stainless being a tough lock! oh my god any amateur knows its a three second lock to open and two of them seconds is getting your tools out! please save your money if you are looking for a book you already know more than what is in this print. the new updated special personal tools that it describes, hmmmm. don't waste the grinding wheel on these ideas.
