    1. Nearly all of the technical information gathered in this volume is obsolete, but that shouldn't discourage you from checking it out. It's a hefty collection of articles that have run in the legendary hacker zine 2600, and the selections give an excellent feeling of what it's like to be a subscriber to the publication. There's a lot of focus on some of the highlights of the past couple of decades: the great series of articles on the Red Box, the notorious FBI raids and crackdowns that are discuss [...]


    2. This should be required reading — as history, technical background, whatever — for everyone working in the tech industry. It’s hard to imagine in our current dystopian nightmare of an industry funded by basketball team owners and managed by McKinsey and hedge fund rejects, but this is the original spirit of curiosity and anarchy that is still out there if you look hard enough.The articles are sort of a greatest hits of the hacker zine 2600. (And I mean “hacker” in the very best sense o [...]


    3. This is old school hacker at its best. The culture is all but lost now, but its nice to remember why and how we all started asking questions and getting answers when the systems that we all rely on today were being built.There's alot of this book that didn't make sense, it was broken into parts, based on technology. The parts that deal with telephony were in section one, computers in section two with small little redirects on social engineering here and there. I'm most happy about the few and po [...]


    4. The series of stories are short and easy to pick up and complete on a whim. Clever exploits on technologies past are fun to indulge in. These stories aren't sensationalized like you would find on the evening news. Hackers and techies tell about interesting faults and exploits.


    5. My review grew increasingly more positive throughout this lengthy book, and I'm not sure if it's sad that I was thinking about that instead of the content, or good that I ultimately landed on four stars in the end.Without an electrical engineering background, the telephone section toward the beginning — including Hertz frequencies, circuits, and making red/blue/black/yellow boxes — was pretty dense. Once the anthology got into computers, however, I started enjoying myself quite a bit more.Su [...]


    6. This really is almost a history of Computing and technology as a hobby. The best of 2600 is of course a compilation of articles printed in the magazine 2600. 2600 markets it self as a hacker magazine. Keep in mind that unless your are the media a hacker isn't necessarily a criminal. Read all the definitions and debate under enpedia/wiki/Hacker A hacker is a tinker and do-it-yourself'er (forgive the bad definition). The magazines articles are divided by era 1980'S 1990'S, and the 2000's. The book [...]


    7. Usually I hate glossaries. They're usually simple, insulting, and useless. This book needs one though, given the wide range of time and technical materials. I got it from the library, but due to it being heavily requested and my schedule didn't make it through. I should have paid closer attention to the table of contents before I started and read it non-linearly. I think this book probably should have been a series, not on large tome. At least they should have pulled out the editorials and legal [...]


    8. A long and large survey of some of the most interesting stories and articles to be published in "2600: The Hacker Quarterly". I kept the book by my bedside for a few years and slowly made my way through it, enjoying the nostalgic look back into those "earlier, simpler" computer times (which is actually a reason I like to read lots of other history books), but also learning history I'd not known much about, like phone-freaking. I certainly can't recommend this for everyone but if you're at a libr [...]


    9. Took me a while to read through, and in the end I skipped a few more boring articles. As a whole, this book offers a nice historic view to hacking on three decades. For myself as a geek, it's a nice summary of many of the issues my fellow nerds have met during this time. The most interesting thing here is the foresight these writers have had since 80s about the rise of surveillance state. They were surely thought to be overly paranoid even after 9/11 attacks, but Snowden leaks have shown us how [...]


    10. The book is a good collection of 25 years of published hacking/phreaking history. The technical level is not that good, and some of the stuff is really laughable, but otherwise it would be a good start for anyone for the basic ideas of computer security, etc.I actually found very little new stuff for me in there, I found out that I've read the early phreaking stuff a long time ago and everything after 2000 is still fresh enough in my memory.


    11. A must have book if you have an interest in taking tech to the limit with these hacking habits compiled by Eric Corley (aka Emmanuel Goldstein). Solid stories from 1984, a 888 pages read :)Should put a detailed review when I get some time


    12. Lots and lots and lots and lots and lots of articles about hackers, crackers, phreakers, nerds, geeks, smart people, dumb people, and telephones of all types. A fantastic way of realizing how weird shit was, back in the day, and how much weirder it's gotten.


    13. Lots of history and reference material here. If you're looking for a great overview of the hacking culture from the 80s through the late 00s, here it is. Its great from a historical perspective because you're reading the actual contemporary articles that were published over the years.




    14. This is the most wonderful book for hacker-types ever. It's essentially 20 years of 2600 magazine bound as a book. Not to be missed.




    15. entertaining look back at the magazine likely a pretty niche group, from phones to computers and general hacking too.


    16. It may be outdated--but variations are rehashed on a regular basis because nothing has changed in the human condition.
