Nearly 20 years of a very specific part of computing history. If you are also interested in social and legal issues in terms of computer hacking and want to learn the details of famous cases such as the Mitnick case or DeCSS (DVD decryption) case this is a very good reference and a page turner. It also has quite technical bits which is definitely a plus.Natural intelligence recommendation: If you liked this book then you'll also like Phrack ;-)more
