Summary and Info
Don't judge a book by its cover or even a cursory reading of its title. This book is only tangentially about computer hacking and hackers. Instead of examining the practices of hacking, this book itself functions as hacking. That is, it is a clever and resourceful investigation of computer technology that breaks into and re-purposes the texts and systems that comprise this thing we call "cyberspace." So instead of being a book about hacking, this book learns and uses the lessons of hacking to analyze and mess with information technology. Bottom line: If you are looking for a handbook about hacking or hoping to protect your network from a hack attack, this is not the book for you. But if you are looking for an insightful and eye-opening foray into the social, political, and philosophical aspects of computer technology, then this book is definitely something you will want on your bookshelf.
