Presents the personal story of a young ghetto kid from Brooklyn who became one of the world's foremost computer hackers and then a security specialist for one of the world's top financial firms.

Blackwell North Amer
One of the most gripping yet improbable stories spawned by the computer revolution, Hacker Cracker is a classic American-dream success story set on the razor edge of high technology. Ejovi Nuwere takes the reader on the roller-coaster ride of his extraordinary life, from the bullet-riddled, drugged-out streets of one of America's most notorious ghettos to a virtual world where identities shift and paranoia rules, where black-hat hackers and white-hat sleuths confront each other by day and switch roles at night in the ongoing war to control America's most sensitive computer systems. It is a story of an African American boy coming of age in the new millennium, a story that vibrates with the themes of American life, those we know and those we are just beginning to glimpse.
