|The New Hacker's Handbook||Littérature Anglais|
The New Hacker's Handbook is a revision ol the pseudonymous Hugo Cornwall's best-selling - and notorious -Hacker's Handbook. The original, you may recall, ruffled feathers at the time of its launch last year.
It never was that dangerous - If truth be told it probably wasn't dangerous at all - but the denuciations helped sales.
But controversy aside, the Handbook was always a useful book for those interested in communications, as opposed to those wanting to learn how to interfere with the Duke of Edinburgh, and the revised version is no exception. It presents a detailed guide to computer communications in both the technical and historical senses, and although it does have a fair amount of anecdotal material on hacking it is also a solidly presented textbook.
This includes details of systems and equipment, plus an excellent series of appendices covering troubleshooting, modem types and so on. It you're interested in comms. and you don't have the earlier version, the book is well worth buying. £6.95 from Century Hutchinson.
