very entertaining. It's amazing how much of what is talked about in this book (particularly the social engineering side) is still applicable. It's a scary place out there.

From not knowing anything but his name and reputation, this was the perfect book to learn about a vital part of hacker history. ( )

Read on beach vacation. Good, informative. Not a GREAT book. A lot of detailed data about his hacking; especially phone companies. Much of it obsolete.
Found ways to keep safe/secure. Beneficial. ( )

Since I work in the IT and technology industry I really enjoyed this book and the level of detail included by Mitnick. Other readers may find it interesting but not as captivating. ( )

A really entertaining read. I already knew most of the story but I still enjoyed it. Of course that doesn't mean I admire Mitnick or condone his actions. The guy spent his life having fun, doing the equivalent of spray painting walls and vandalising bus shelters for no benefit to anyone and little benefit for himself just for his own gratification. He was treated harshly but it's not like he claims he was innocent. He feels hard done by society and his friends but then again I'm sure his friends and society feels the same about him. He's been given so many second chances it's obscene but in the end maybe society will get something back from him now he's decided to contribute back. Or maybe he just got better at it. I guess we'll find out in the next memoir. ( )

In Ghost in the Wires, Kevin Mitnick tells the story of his hacking career, from the start in his teens, through becoming the FBI's most wanted hacker, to spending years in jail before finally being released. There are lots of details on how he broke into phone systems and computers to get the source code of various systems and cell phones.

I was surprised to learn how much of it was thanks to social engineering, i.e. pretending to be somebody else in order to get information, for example passwords. One of the biggest takeaways from the book for me was all the different ways he used to get people to reveal secrets to him. Truly eye-opening.

The book is also quite exciting at times. It reads like a thriller, especially when Kevin is on the run from the FBI (which is most of the time, actually). Despite being around 400 pages, it felt like a quick read. I would recommend it to anybody interested in hacking, social engineering or computer security.

I have also written about this on my blog: "Social Engineering from Kevin Mitnick" https://henrikwarne.com/2015/12/27/social-engineering-from-kevin-mitnick/ ( )
