    1. Although this is technically a dictionary/encyclopedia I have read it cover to cover many times. Intensely interesting, funny and educational. This is the sort of nerd's paradise that we all wish we could find early in life and man am I glad I found this one early. Also includes all the "Crunchly" comics and several extended anecdotes from hacker culture. If you can find it, read it. (Or just get soft-copy of the interweb.)

    2. TNHD could definitely use a new edition There's a lot of out of date info (and unnecessary character-assassination of Kevin Mitnik, in the bibliography) and a lot of current stuff that's in dire need of being added, great sample of the hacker culture right up until '96 though.

    3. Pure geek entertainment a long with some great historical insight. And yes, I did read it cover to cover along with appendixes.

    4. It's the classic, massive Jargon File document in book form! Tons of fun stories from the early, wild west days of IT.

    5. The words themselves may not be used anymore, but we all need to remember where we come from. Hacker was a badge of honor long before the 1337 shit all over it.

    6. Sort of like Ambrose Bierce's "The Devil's Dictionary," but applied to hacker culture. Every entry is full of interesting stuff--an indispensable book.
