    From the Back Cover
    -------------------

    The world’s most celebrated hacker delivers the lowdown on today’s most serious security weakness–human
    nature

    "Finally someone is on to the real cause of data security breaches–stupid humans … Mitnick … reveals clever tricks of
    the ‘social engineering’ trade and shows how to fend them off."
    –Stephen Manes, Forbes

    "A tour de force, a series of tales of how some old-fashioned blarney and high-tech skills can pry any information from
    anyone. As entertainment, it’s like reading the climaxes of a dozen complex thrillers, one after the other."
    –Publishers Weekly

    "Mitnick provides hair-raising examples of social engineering–disgruntled employees stealing top-secret research,
    smooth-talking con men acquiring data on next-generation explosives for terrorists–and explains how to combat it."
    –Angela Gunn, Time Out New York

    "He was the FBI’s most-wanted hacker. But in his own eyes, Mitnick was simply a small-time con artist with an
    incredible memory [and] a knack for social engineering… This is Mitnick’s account, complete with advice for how to
    protect yourself from similar attacks. I believe his story."
    –Simson Garfinkel, Wired
