I'm not sure the book itself is amazing, but memoirs are always difficult to rank. Kevin Mitnick's life is amazing, and I enjoyed listening to the audiobook narrated by Ray Porter. (I'm glad I had it in Audible and not on CD since listening 2x speed was just about right.)

This would make anyone's techie, secret-agent wannabe heart glad. Hacking that defined hacking. Hacking that created legislation. Hacking before the internet. Fearless, boundless, persistent hacking. And then identity jumping, foiling the FBI, and more hacking.

There's a lesson at the end, boys and girls. That was kind of strange.
