    From the bedroom terminals of teenagers isolated from their peers by their hyperactive intellects, to the nerve center of a nationwide long-distance phone company infiltrated by a hacker's hand, Masters of Deception offers an unprecedented tour of the murkiest reaches of the electronic frontier and a trenchant, blow-by-blow chronicle of the most notorious gang war in cyberspace.

    The narrator whistles his "S" in every word and placement in the word. Not a good thing when listenening with headphones.

  • Understanding Movies: The Art and History of Film: The Modern Scholar

    Why does the cinema have the power to move the heart, stimulate the mind, and dazzle the imagination? How did the art of film develop from its origins to the present day? This course covers the history and aesthetics of the movies. It traces the experiments and innovations that gave rise to the modern cinema, developing a vocabulary that helps explain the variety of choices filmmakers make when they construct shots and edit them together.

    Story

    I picked up this book to compliment a college course i'm taking called "Movies and Meaning". I was hoping that it would help explain some of the terms of the art and history of film such as lighting and camera perspective along with film noir and auter in yet another way to help reinforce the classroom learning.

    What I got instead was a film critic review of films through different time periods. Despite having a title and subject that is for beginners, the terms that the author did use were not explained before use and assumed a level of knowledge before listening.

    The author made comments about the films subject matter based on his understanding of the film industry at the time and not the films subject matter. He butchered the review of INDIANA JONES and STAR WARS to the point where it seems that his review was based on a poorly written article about the films. If he was actually talking about the art and history of films where he focused on the making of the movies and the film industry at the time, then maybe. Instead, he was actually reviewing the film subject matter like a film critic.
