Reviewer Koos van den Hout wrote:
The story of Kevin Mitnick according to .. Kevin Mitnick. It's really interesting reading his side of the story now, after reading "Takedown" by Tsutomu Shimomura and John Markoff, both not completely free of their prejudices in this story and reading "The Fugutive Game" by Jonathan Littman which is an interesting book but leaves the reader wondering whether Kevin Mitnick is really understood in this book. Now, Ghost in the Wires tells Kevin's side, detailed, with lots of backstory we haven't had access to before. A detailed overview of how Kevin came to be the person we have all heard about, how he lost trust in a lot of people and how compulsive his hacking was. It is funny to read how certain events where Tsutomo fills pages trying to second-guess Kevin are minor details in Kevin's side of the story. All in all a very good book and it is good to have Kevin's side of the story out in the open.
