Ejovi Nuwere was born into poverty in the Bedford Stuyvesant neighborhood of Brooklyn. Raised by his grandmother, his extended family included two uncles who served as role models: one a career criminal, the other a college student with a PC he loaned to his nephew. By the time he was 13, Ejovi had become a computer expert -- a gifted hacker with a talent that propelled him to the top of a dangerous underground world in which he ranked as one of its most elite practitioners. And at 21, he has become a top security specialist for one of the world's largest financial firms.

Interweaving details of his life growing up on the bullet-ridden streets of Bed-Sty with fascinating hacker lore and a glimpse of the inner workings of sensitive corporate computer systems, Hacker Cracker is a Horatio Alger tale for our times: a thrilling, frightening, and ultimately uplifting story of survival and success.
