An absolute great read about the world of Hackers,
This review is from: The Hacker Diaries : Confessions of Teenage Hackers (Hardcover)
I really liked this book and learned a lot about the hacker scene. Verton does not portray all hackers as bad, that's what surprised me so much. Many have had good intentions and ethics from the beginnings, others have become aware of the negative effects of what they were doing and many are now valuable security officers at respected companies. Hey, what about Starla Pureheart, who won the Defcon ethical hacking contest! The book truly presents an insight!
