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

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Kevin Mitnick, William L. Simon

Narrated By: Ray Porter

Publisher: Blackstone Audiobooks

Date: August 2011

Duration: 14 hours 0 minutes

Summary:

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.

    Not for me. Juvenile style and surprisingly not so much hacking as conning and lying his way into phone companies & networks. I think the narration exaggerated the sophomoric humor and entitled, defensive attitude. I gave up after an hour or two.

    Excellent! If you are in to technology and even remotely interested in learning about the life of a hacker then this audiobook is for you. I became interested in this book after listening to the Steve Jobs biography where they briefly touch on "phone freaking" and hacking. I wanted to learn a little more about the subject so I decided to give Ghost In The Wires a try. Honestly I never would have thought that I would have enjoyed this book so much. Ray Porter's narration really enhanced the experience for me. Overall, the story of Kevin Mitnick turned out to be extremely entertaining and a little scary. It certainly makes you wonder if there are people out there right now trying to do the same things he did... though with more of a "dark side" mentality.

    Thought that there was a good balance between the plot and technical details. one of the better hacking books that are offered.
