From the Back Cover:

"Enter the hostile world of computer crime from the comfort of your own armchair. Mitnick presents ten compelling chapters, each the result of an interview with a real hacker about a real attack. A must-read for anyone with an interest in information security."
Tom Parker, Computer Security Analyst and founder of Global InterSec LLC

"Each chapter begins with a computer crime story that reads like a suspense novel."
Library Journal

"It would be difficult to find an author with more credibility than Mitnick to write about the art of hacking.... [The Art of Intrusion] introduces readers to a fascinating array of pseudonymous hackers. One group bilks Las Vegas casinos out of more than a million dollars by mastering the patterns inherent in slot machines; another fellow, less fortunate, gets mixed up with a presumed al-Qaeda-style terrorist.... Uniformly readable, the stories ... will impart familiar lessons to security pros while introducing lay readers to an enthralling field of inquiry."
Publishers Weekly

When you're a legend among hackers, they tell you their stories

If you're a computer security officer, these tales crawled out of that closet where your nightmares live. Fears about national security keeping you awake? Put the coffee on; it gets worse. And if you just enjoy a darn good real-life spy story, strap yourself in for a wild read.

From the Inside Flap:

Four pals clean up in Vegas with a pocket-sized computer. A bored Canadian teen gains access to the wire transfers section of a major Southern bank. A couple of kids are recruited to hack into Lockheed Martin and the Defense Information System Network by a terrorist with ties to Osama bin Laden.

And these stories are true.

If you're the security officer in your organization, the tales in this book crawled out of that closet where your nightmares live. Fears about national security keeping you awake? Put the coffee on; it gets worse. And if you just enjoy a heck of a good cliff-hanger full of spies and real-life intrigue, strap yourself in for a wild read.
