Description : The world's most infamous hacker offers an insider's view of the low-tech threats to high-tech security Kevin Mitnick's exploits as a cyber-desperado and fugitive form one of the most exhaustive FBI manhunts in history and have spawned dozens of articles, books, films, and documentaries. Since his release from federal prison, in 1998, Mitnick has turned his life around and established himself as one of the most sought-after computer security experts worldwide. Now, in The Art of Deception, the world's most notorious hacker gives new meaning to the old adage, "It takes a thief to catch a thief." Focusing on the human factors involved with information security, Mitnick explains why all the firewalls and encryption protocols in the world will never be enough to stop a savvy grifter intent on rifling a corporate database or an irate employee determined to crash a system. With the help of many fascinating true stories of successful attacks on business and government, he illustrates just how susceptible even the most locked-down information systems are to a slick con artist impersonating an IRS agent. Narrating from the points of view of both the attacker and the victims, he explains why each attack was so successful and how it could have been prevented in an engaging and highly readable style reminiscent of a true-crime novel. And, perhaps most importantly, Mitnick offers advice for preventing these types of social engineering hacks through security protocols, training programs, and manuals that address the human element of security.

Description : Hacker extraordinaire Kevin Mitnick delivers the explosive encore to his bestselling The Art of Deception Kevin Mitnick, the world's most celebrated hacker, now devotes his life to helping businesses and governments combat data thieves, cybervandals, and other malicious computer intruders. In his bestselling The Art of Deception, Mitnick presented fictionalized case studies that illustrated how savvy computer crackers use "social engineering" to compromise even the most technically secure computer systems. Now, in his new book, Mitnick goes one step further, offering hair-raising stories of real-life computer break-ins-and showing how the victims could have prevented them. Mitnick's reputation within the hacker community gave him unique credibility with the perpetrators of these crimes, who freely shared their stories with him-and whose exploits Mitnick now reveals in detail for the first time, including: A group of friends who won nearly a million dollars in Las Vegas by reverse-engineering slot machines Two teenagers who were persuaded by terrorists to hack into the Lockheed Martin computer systems Two convicts who joined forces to become hackers inside a Texas prison A "Robin Hood" hacker who penetrated the computer systems of many prominent companies-andthen told them how he gained access With riveting "you are there" descriptions of real computer break-ins, indispensable tips on countermeasures security professionals need to implement now, and Mitnick's own acerbic commentary on the crimes he describes, this book is sure to reach a wide audience-and attract the attention of both law enforcement agencies and the media.

Description : Spirituality has become a billion-dollar industry, second only to beauty products in variety and annual sales. It seems that everywhere we look, someone is claiming to have the right way to meditate, the accurate channeled message, or the insider's guide to enlightenment. These spiritual leaders or gurus understand the worldwide hunger for a deeper spiritual connection, and they are tapping into that hunger. If they have all the answers, then why, after reading the metaphysical books, attending the seminars and going to "enlightened" teachers, are we still struggling to pay the bills, stay healthy and form positive relationships? Why is the world still in such a chaotic state and getting worse? When we ask spiritual leaders these questions, we are handed sugarcoated platitudes that blind us to the truth, keep us complacent, and prevent us from realizing our potential as aspects of the Creator. We keep plugging along, waiting to manifest the joy that supposedly lies just around the corner, with no idea we have actually bought into a brilliant marketing strategy meant to keep us trapped. Spiritual Warfare and The Art of Deception: The Hijacking of Spirituality reveals the truth many New Age leaders do not want us to know; namely, that there are Dark Forces on this planet that have infiltrated every aspect of life, including the very institutions and new thought philosophies we turn to for spiritual guidance. This book will teach you how to: Understand who you are and the true meaning of life in this embodiment. Discern between true messages from Creator and those working on behalf of the Dark Forces Take responsibility for your spiritual growth Figure out how you can truly be of service to others and to the planet Understand the importance of Discernment and how to Discern Detect spiritual deception False spirituality is keeping us in a delusion and within the confines of "the Matrix" Become spiritually empowered by understanding the tactics used by the Dark Forces Implement the change we want to see in this world Understand the concept of Ascension and how to achieve it"

Description : The lively and fascinating story of baseball’s 150-year hunt for the perfect pitch In August 2012, Felix Hernandez of the Seattle Mariners pitched a perfect game against the Tampa Bay Rays in what Terry McDermott calls “one of the greatest exhibitions of off-speed pitches ever put on.” For McDermott, a lifelong fan and student of baseball, the extraordinary events of that afternoon inspired this incisive meditation on the art of pitching. Within the framework of Hernandez’s historic achievement, Off Speed provides a vibrant narrative of the history and evolution of pitching, combining baseball's rich tradition of folklore with the wealth of new metrics from a growing legion of statisticians who are transforming the way we think about the game. Off Speed is also the personal story of a fan’s steadfast devotion, first kindled in McDermott by his father at the local diamond in small-town Iowa and now carried forward with the same passion by his own daughters. Approaching his subject with the love every fan brings to the park and the expertise of a probing journalist, McDermott explores with irrepressible curiosity the science and the romance of baseball.
