Editorial Reviews

Review

''Intriguing, insightful and extremely educational into the mind of one who truly mastered the art of social engineering with the use of a computer and modern day technologies. I strongly believe that one can learn a great deal about protecting themselves once they understand how another one perpetrates the crime.'' --Frank W. Abagnale, author of Catch Me if You Can

''Mitnick's sense of humor is evident as he recounts his adventures . . . 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.'' --New York Times

''It's the piquant human element that really animates this rollicking memoir of high-tech skullduggery . . . The considerable charm of this nonstop caper saga lies in seeing the giant, faceless bureaucracies that rule and regulate us unmasked as assemblages of hapless people dancing to a plucky con man's tune.'' --Publishers Weekly

''A lucid, brightly written tale for both techies and lay readers.'' --Kirkus Reviews
