I really enjoyed this book Loved the references to Berkeley the hacker chase but most interestingly it takes you back to an earlier time in computing in 1989 which I thought was a fascinating reminder of what things were like For example I love the explanation of electronic mail At this point I think most people have forgotten what the e in email stands for Also a favorite passage as he explains what the Internet is At first DARPA s network the Internet was simply a testbed to prove computers could be linked together Since it was seen as an unreliable experiment universities and laboratories used it and main stream military people ignored it After eight years only a few hundred computers were connected into the Arpanet but gradually others were attracted by the network s reliability and simplicity By 1985 the network directory listed tens of thousands of computers today there must be over one hundred thousand100000 computers Just for comparison I did a uick search Analysts predict there to be mobile devices connected to the Internet then humans alive in 2016 that s than 76 billion mobile devices that doesn t include desktop and laptop computers source Cisco VNI Index Wonder what it will be like in another 20 yearsThe story is also fascinating Shows how one guy in a computer lab in Berkeley was able to track down a ring of international hackers and awaken some of the US top security agencies to the dawn of a new form of espionage It was amazing how lax computer security was before this and how it took an incident like this to awaken these agencies to the threat of cyber espionageOnly reason it gets 4 instead of 5 starts is that while the beginning and end are very interesting about mid book it starts to get pretty repetitive Eg view spoilerBeginning is fascinating as to how he identifies and starts to track the hacker But there are a hundred or so pages where he just a gets alerted that the hacker is active b jumps out of bed c starts a phone trace d the phone trace fails for some reason e he calls a bunch of federal agents and gets ignored Seuence is interesting a couple times but got a little repetitive Could have shortened this part and spent time on the actual ring of hackers once they got discovered This only occupied a small part of the end of the book hide spoiler

Excellent book about hackers and computer security told in a way that you do NOT have to be a geek to understand Amazing that so much has changed since the early 80 s in terms of technology yet the tactics for both hackers and security are fundamentally unchangedThis book is told as a humorous narrative of Cliff s life helping track down a computer hacker Being an astronomer working at Berkley and being a self described left wing nut he ends up brushing shoulders with the FBI CIA NSA and other three letter agencies on a common mission to track down and lock out a hacker I debated between 4 and 5 stars My dilemma is that while it s not dry by any means it did get a little long winded in the middle and I switched and read another book in the meantime to get a break before coming back to finish Well worth the read though and I ve started other people who are not computer geeks reading it as well who seem to be thoroughly enjoying it For this reason I m leaving it at 5 stars
