did not like it

I hugely enjoyed Mitnick's last book, The Art Of Intrusion, but this book by comparison is completely BORING. Mitnick just tells stories of people who conned companies and people over the phone and after a while, the stories get very boring and repetitive. Yeah, we get it Kevin - don't assume anything over the phone, and don't give out sensitive material to people you don't know. You don't need to bore us to death with 350 pages just to get those two central points across.[return][return]Avoid this book - unless you're looking for a strong sedative to put you to sleep at night.
