They say “What you see is what you get!” but Kevin "Boingthump" Phenicle could always see more than most people. In the world of phone phreaks, hackers, and scammers, he's a legend. Could he really get free long-distance calls by whistling into a pay phone? Did his video-game piracy scheme accidentally trigger the first computer virus? And did he really dodge the FBI by using their own wiretapping software against them? Inspired by the incredible stories of real-life hackers, Wizzywig is the thrilling tale of a master manipulator — his journey from precocious child scammer to federally-wanted fugitive, and beyond.
