Nostalgic
This is a great book. A confident, yet humble account of the greatest hacker hunt in history. Some of the contents might seem too incredible to believe, but speaking as someone who was
starting out in infosec in 1995, it sounds just about right compared to the stories and rumors I remember floating around at the time. It is great to get the whole story of what I heard only half of.

A VERY READABLE BOOK. ALTHOUGH HAVING SOME COMPUTER LINGO,+ ALSO HAVING SOME CODES AT THE START OF EVERY CHAPTER,IT IS VERY READABLE. MITNICK'S WRITING IS USUALLY EASY TO UNDERSTAND(EXCEPT THE COMPUTERESE),+THE READER GETS CAUGHT UP IN THE DRAMA OF HIS LIFE,+IT IS RIVETING ALL THE WAY THROUGH.

Fantastic story Kevin Mitnick is a truly gifted security professional!
Kevin Mitnick has always been a hero of mine and his third book Ghost in the Wires tells the exciting, and true life of the
worlds most wanted hacker in the late 1980's-1990's. Mitnick was extremely successful at breaking in to any place he wanted because of his great SE (Social-Engineering) skills. Mitnick shares his funny humor throughout each hack and it really is just crazy the excuses he would always come up with right on the spot. I find it to be the best security book I have ever read and I think it should be on every security professional's and IT Guy's required reading list. The things Kevin stole from companies could have put them all out of business, but thankfully he was never hacking to do damage to anyone. Mitnick also never profited from any of his hacks on these huge phone companies and software companies. The things Mitnick could accomplish were just mind-blowing. This book puts an end to the myths behind the worlds most wanted hacker, The Great Kevin Mitnick!

Great book worth the read and I am proud to have this on my bookshelf. This book was more of a biography then a instructional hacking guide. I was very happy to read and was defiantly worth my time and money.
