"If I were to be shipwrecked on a desert island and was allowed just one IT book to keep me company until my death, Hackers: Heroes of the Computer Revolution would be it."
--Davey Winder, DaniWeb
"If you haven't read Hackers, either in the original or new edition, I would recommend it. It's a fascinating read."
--Thomas Duff, Duffbert's Random Musings
"Hackers is an outstanding read, as fresh and illuminating a history of The Hacker Ethic as you will ever find, even 25 years after its original publication. This is a true classic of the genre."
--Greg Barbrick, Blogcritics.org
"While several books have been written through the years giving partial biographies of the pioneers and leaders of Computer Software Development, none other than this
classic gives a fully developed creative and fun picture of lives and adventures of these programming pioneers."
