I read this book in previous and enjoyed it immensely. It's very well-written.

I really enjoyed Cyberpunk because it examined three very unique sets of characters. Kevin Mitnick's story centers on obsession, manipulation, a quest for knowledge, and betrayal at various levels. Hans Hübner's story involves espionage, but told from the perspective of the spies rather than the defenders. Robert Morris' story describes the ultimate hack gone bad, incorporating elements familiar to most security pros of the current decade. Readers could find elements of all three personalities in the modern world, although criminal and state-sponsored activity is by far the most prevalent.

John Markoff was deeply involved during all of the stories. He was in contact with the law enforcement during the Mitnick story, he was a friend of Cliff Stoll during the second story. During the third story, he was called by Cliff Stoll and was a friend of Bob Morris, the father of Robert Morris, and was one of the earliest people to discover who created the internet worm. From that perspective, the book is not a neutral journalist perspective as you might expect.

I was thinking of rating this book between 3 and 4 stars. 4 because I enjoyed reading it. 3 because of the non-neutrality and the lack of correct technical details. I chose 4 because of the epilogue (written by the other author, Katie Hafner) which described the follow-up of the three stories and asks really valid questions related to whether Mitnick was really the famous bad hacker he is depicted as.

kevin mitnik is a really Great and the king of CyberPunk. ..!!
