In early 2000, the websites of CNN, Yahoo, E*Trade, Dell, Amazon, and eBay ground to a halt for several hours, causing a sense of panic everywhere from the White House to suburbia and around the world. After two months and hundreds of hours of wiretapping, the FBI and RCMP staged a late-night raid to apprehend the most wanted man in cyberspace—a fifteen-year-old kid. Mafiaboy. For eight years, Mafiaboy, a.k.a. Michael Calce, has ignored requests from every major media outlet in North America, he has not told a word of his story—until now. Using his story as a cautionary tale, Calce takes the reader through the history of hacking and how it has helped make the internet the new frontier for crime in the tweny-first century.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I really enjoyed this book I started reading it knowing just a little about the story... turns out to be pretty interesting and refreshing. You won't get to know more about hacking, it is more like a personal journal with a great touch of humor. I think this guy is a genius and I recommend this book to everyone :) I am french and I read it in English, it is easy to understand and well written.Could be a great Christmas gift :)
