    1. I am not a programmer of any sort nor a 'hacker' (proper usage) but I am more than average technically inclined and interested in etymology. This book is a 'dictionary' of hacker and other computer sub-culture slang along with some historical references to origins and 'folklore'. I found it a good nightstand read; something to get me to sleep that I didn't need to remember or could put down at any point.

    2. Note: I read v 4.0.0 from project Gutenberg. As a wanabe hacker (in the non-pejorative sense) who's been online since the early 90's, I enjoyed this. It is a bit like reading a dictionary which is partly historical and partly humorous. If you're not into tech or have no comprehension of pre-broadband, pre-ipad network computing then I'd wonder how interesting this book would be?
