First book that I've read straight through in a long time. Well written, not too technical but still covers the general concepts. Focuses on the criminals and looks at the motivation of many of the main characters. Includes links for checking out more information (most of which is still around on the internet).

Highly recommended.

Oh, and I bought it for $12.99 from BN, so they've fixed the pricing. I agree with the others that a nook book should be about half the printed price.

Don't follow pricing strategy...

Agree with other reviewers - very disappointing to see this priced the same as a hard-cover. If this becomes a trend, we may be witnessing the beginning of the end of e-books.

    Reason?

    Is there a reason why the electronic version is the same price as the hardcover? I would very much like to buy this book, but I do not want to pay the hardcover price . . .

    Is it Fiction or Fact!?

    This book reads like a fiction novel and realizing that it's not will either scare you or leave you in awe as to the power and complexity of carding schemes and technology. The technical information in the book is palatable to the not-so-tech savvy and in some ways I wish that more technical information were available, however, for the sake of continuity and palatability the author keeps the story moving.
