A fantastic read of plot, tech, crime and the geeks behind the keyboard
For a subject most people would begin to get "The Glaze" if people described it to them, this book is about the geeks, as they describe themselves. It is about the invisible war between the good guys and the bad guys being fought right now over control of networks of computers which can be used to bring down banks, overload organisations, wreak havoc or worse. This book is expertly written in a way which grips the reader from the first few pages. It explains inconceivable concepts simply and elegantly. The narrative diffuses from the writing and carries you along in a fever of plots, intrigue, counterterrorism, shadowy characters, fiendish technological programming and more in a way which doesn't overload the brain.
