Kevin Mitnick is certainly an intelligent person. We see that early on in this book with his escapades in phone freaking for free long distance calls. His hacking only becomes more advanced as he grows older and gains more experience penetrating security systems. But at what cost? Mitnick spends the majority of his young adult life both in jail and on the run, switching from one stolen identity to the next. He drags his family through the pains of his addiction as well. But at no point does Mitnick show remorse for breaching the infrastructures of tech companies around the globe. Should he have to? That's the theme of this adventure-filled autobiography about Kevin Mitnick, one of the world's most wanted hackers.
Really enjoyed this fascinating story of someone who was intrigued and enthralled with learning about telephony and computers. Although he may have not damaged the individual companies, he did violate them and his punishment seemed fair only because he had people that helped and assisted him in keeping the authorities from screwing him over. Looking forward to his other books.
Kevin Mitnick is a awesome. He just did it. The author here narrate here about the entire hacking technique he had been through his entire life. I just can't imagine he hack down the entire system server on his early age and didn't even get caught by them thats the coolest stuff. He also travelled in the buses at free of cost I would like to do once thats real thrill. We should really give credit to Louis who is Kevin's friend also a hacker at the age of 16. They both together done some lovely stuff. I throughly enjoyed the life journey of Kevin. Stealing the FBI records he is amazingly dare to do that. He never mislead any of the files that he stole that shows he is genuine. All together this is lovely book for the techies who love to do some hacking. I loved it too.
Computational cognition, ethics, transhumanism, etc.
Very much like franky A. Entertaining. Informative. Personal. It will change your life. It will change our country. But that's been Kevin's work for a couple of years now.
