The author has written several good books, but this is not one of them. It is a collection of mini-memoirs of notorious hackers. This is good for trivia aficionados and makes for some great name-dropping at social events, but seems slightly lacking otherwise.

This book is so intriguing that I could not put down. I buzzed through the 250 pages in less than 2 days. The author Misha Glenny takes the reader on a journey into the underworld of cyber-crime that has flourished alongside the internet over the past few decades. He mixes easily digestible tech terminology with the interesting back stories of both the criminals and the law enforcement agents trying to make their convictions. Glenny has done his homework and seems to have a direct link to many of the players involved. The book is informative, entertaining and very engrossing. I dare you to read the first 15 pages and can almost guarantee you will keep on reading it. Give it a shot.
