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 --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

About the Author

KEVIN MITNICK has been the subject of countless news and magazine articles, the idol of thousands of would-be hackers, and a one-time ''most wanted'' criminal of cyberspace. Now a security consultant, he has spoken to audiences at conventions around the world, been on dozens of major national television and radio shows, and even testified in front of Congress. He is the author of The Art of Deception and The Art of Intrusion.

WILLIAM L. SIMON is a bestselling coauthor of numerous books, including iCon, the biography of Steve Jobs, and Kevin Mitnick's two previous books. He has also written for USA Today and the Washington Post and been interviewed on CNBC, CNN, NPR and by the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, BusinessWeek, Time, Newsweek, and many other publications. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
