Makes you realise how insecure a lot of computers are,

This author was recommended to me by a geek friend and after I did some research on Mitnick, I realised this was a guy I wanted to read. I was a bit amazed to read all the reviews who accused Mitnick of putting his ego all over the book. I didn't see any evidence of that at all. Yes he talks quite a bit about his own experiences in relation to what he is talking about in that chapter but that is to be expected. After all, he IS a convicted computer hacker! So he does have some knowledge in this area! Is this egotism? I don't think so. He is just giving us the benefit of his own experiences.
Where this book slightly falls down is that Mitnick makes it WAY too complicated and technical for people like me who are not that techie and geeky. So he talks about computer languages and hacking procedures that are just way too complicated to follow. So if you are not fluent in the lingo, you'll find yourself page flipping. This book is ideally for geeks and nerds who talk computer languages that normal people wouldn't even begin to comprehend! Not me unfortunately.
Nevertheless, this is a fascinating insight into the world of hacking and it is also frightening - it makes you realise how insecure a lot of computer systems are all over the world and how a teenager with a PC can easily gain access. Remember that the next time you're entering your password into your online banking.
