"This informative and well-written book deals exactly with what the title states. We are afraid of computer hackers yet do not know much about who hackers are, their motivation, or personalities, and think of them in stereotypical ways. Schell and Dodge clearly present a broad picture of people in the hacker community and their activities--i.e., the "Black Hat" (the kind of hackers we often stereotype) and the "White Hat..,.".This interesting book will appeal to both specialists and laypersons, since no one can escape hacker activities. Highly recommended. Public and academic levels; all collections."-Choice
This is the first book to explore and profile the personalities and behavioral traits of more than 200 self-admitted hackers.
