Imagine two rooms. Between these two rooms is a solid brick wall. We as human being have been conditioned to believe that this wall keeps us from moving from one room to the other. From the moment each of us were born, we have been taught that we cannot move between these rooms. We have been made to think according to predefined rules. We think… in a box. Boxthinkers. Hacking - by any definition - is the art of thinking outside of that box. To creatively formulate new, unconventional ways to do things. Dennis Ritchie (the creator of C), Linus Torvalds, the people at Xerox who invented the mouse. All became who they were for thinking outside the box. Kevin Mitnick, Kevin Paulson - accomplished the legendary computer and phone system break-in they did for not being boxthinkers. Computer hacking does require an amount of technical knowledge. That’s why you’re reading this manual. Arguably more important, though, is creativity. Resourcefulness, and an open mind. When shown a brick wall, know that it is possible to get into the other room - all you have to do is figure out how.

It's true, though, that "Hackers" is a good read.
