Overview: Ghost in the Wires

About the Book: Ghost in the Wires: My Adventures as the World's Most Wanted Hacker

Kevin Mitnick, the world's most wanted computer hacker, managed to hack into some of the country's most powerful - and seemingly impenetrable - agencies and companies. By conning employees into giving him private information and maneuvering through layers of security, he gained access to data that no one else could. The suspenseful heart of the book unfolds as Mitnick disappears on a three-year run from the FBI. He creates fake identities, finds jobs at a law firm and hospital, and keeps tabs on his myriad pursuers - all while continuing to hack into computer systems and phone company switches that were considered flawless. A modern, technology-driven adventure story, Ghost in the Wires is a dramatic account of the joy of outsmarting security programs, the satisfaction of code-cracking, and the thrill of unbelievable escape.

  1.  You don't need to be a techy to enjoy this one 16 September, 2013 On
    Ghost in the wires is a definitely not in the league of 'catch me if you can' but still keeps you engaged for the most part. Some part of the book are outright thrilling and page turners where you just want to know what happens next. The only true weakness the the narrative has repetitiveness. The fact that the protagonist was able to pull the same stunt on multiple people, multiple times, does not mean that it all needs to be described in detail every time. Having said that, some of the instances described in the book catch you in splits and some sections make you sit up and hold the protagonist in awe for his daring (and some times the apparent lack of sense).

    The end of the book is a bit abrupt in my opinion. This one definitely deserves a much better epilogue than what it has got. Overall, a good read in part because you do not have to be a techy to 'get' what is going on.
