I agree with the many other reviewers about the virtues of this book. It covers the evolution of the computer out of the glass room perhaps the best of any book out there. The book's strong narrative structure is also its only real flaw as it forces the history of the computer into a neat east/west dicotomy capped off by an idealized Richard Stallman portrayed as the last hacker. Still, a great book that is one of the "must reads" for anyone interested in how the computer industry grew and developed.

I first read this book in the late 1980s, as a teenaged computer enthusiast, and I was incredibly inspired by the contents. In the mid-1990s, I bought a copy of the trade paperback and I now regularly re-read the stories of the people who share my love of computing.
I don't think that you can really understand the motivation of folks like Richard Stallman and the GNU project without reading this book.
I would like to see an updated version of this book that covered the period from 1982-2000.

Das Buch nähert sich den sogenannten "Hackern" von der intellektuellen Seite. Keine "Hacker-Geheimsprache" sondern klare Worte erkären die Szene und die verschiedenen Techniken. Auch für Beginner der Hacker-Szene ein sehr lesenswertes Buch sowie die, welche gegen die Hacker-Szene arbeiten.

I read this book in 1987 and couldn't have asked for a better perspective on computer history. This is a must for anyone employed in the IT vendor community and for anyone who thinks that Jobs and Wosniak created the computer. It is fascinating, well-written, and informative.

Ein interessanter Einblick in die Anfänge der Hacker und die Motivation dieser Personen. Manchmal etwas langatmig geschrieben, aber ich immer wieder spannend und auch erheiternd.
Empfehlenswert!

This book is phenomanlly well written. The author does a terrific job of making complex computer jargon understandable, and makes what would otherwise be a boring subjectfascinating and compelling.

There are only a few books I would ever re-read and this is one of them. In particular, Part One and the Epilogue are wonderful depictions of the true enjoyment of computing.

A nice overview of the history of software development, but it overglamorizes drones in the software industry and has disapointingly little technical information. It is overly pedantic in its glamorization of the so-called hacker ethic. At least Levy discusses the ethic in its historical context (where it belongs) rather than trying to pretend it applys in todays world.

Before I had all the programming books, C, Perl, VB. But I was not motivated enough to read them till I read this book and try to be a good programmer well at least try to be a future hacker!
