A hacker's mind : how the powerful bend society's rules, and how to bend them back / Bruce Schneier.


It's not just computers: hacking is everywhere. A hack is any means of subverting a system's rules in unintended ways. Schneier takes hacking out of the world of computing and uses it to analyze the systems that underpin our society: from tax laws to financial markets to politics. If you can take advantage of loopholes -- hacks -- the rules no longer apply to you. Once you learn how to notice hacks, you'll start seeing them everywhere -- and you'll never look at the world the same way again. - adapted from jacket
