It's quite interesting from a historical perspective. The author gives a straight out acount of events which relies on lots of facts and figures. There isn't much of a creative slant given to the content. Most of the text focuses on AT&T and the phone phreaking community. There isn't too much information on "computer hackers" by comparison. But it's still a good read that includes some interesting insights on the ideas and politics around at the time.
Thanks a lot for this post...is it a good book to read?
