From the Publisher:

The first Stealing book focused on the individual hacker. This book shows you what a group can do! ...what if you were part of a group, and didn't even know it? What if you made friends with someone on-line, and the two of you worked on a project together, not knowing the other person was using you to their aims? Now things get interesting!-From the foreword by Jeff Moss

He didn't notice the hooker asking him if he wanted a good time. He didn't notice the bum asking for 5 rand. He didn't notice the punk kid paying for one newspaper yet taking them all from the machine. His mind was ablaze with what he thought he would have to do, and probably wouldn't have noticed if he stepped on a rusty nail. Street. Cat. Door. Stairs. Up. He turned the key and opened the door to his apartment without losing his step. He didn't even realize that he closed the door without locking it. Backpack. Drop. Fridge. Beer. Spray in Eye. Shit. Screen. On. PGP. Mail. Scanning. There it was.

-----BEGIN PGP MESSAGE----- Version: PGP 8.0

Matthew copied the text, loaded PGP keys, and then grabbed the alternate keyring he needed. He ran PGPMail, and typed his passphrase. Even the e-mail hissed when he read it. "This is what must be done."

And featuring an inside look at the making of Stealing the Continent: this special appendix gives you access to the actual email threads of the STC authors, showing how the plot developed and how the authors and editors worked to build the book.
