    Totally!

    It give you a history lesson to how phone work and came into place,
    Historical story about the AT&T attack in 1990 and the "crackdown" on the hackers responsible for it. FBI and everything.....

    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.

    Here's the html version if anyone's interested.

    You can also get a text version from: Wiretapped.

    If you can't follow the link, FTP to ftp.wiretapped.com, then make your way to the /sd3a/security/info/books folder and download the file 'bruce-sterling--the-hacker-crackdown.txt'.

    I bought that book a long time ago, but haven't read still, when I have time I'll read it perhaps...
    But the picture in the front cover is a bit, ermm "idiotic" (couldn't find a word to fit)

    Sorry, I don't have a scanner...
    The cover is red in colour, there's an old desktop computer.
    In the monitor there's a man covering half of his face with his jacket..
