    Twenty-one years worth of living doesn't usually merit a biography. But hacker Ejovi Nuwere's new memoir is worth a read, not because it describes a particularly unique life, but because of its intimate look into the life of a technically inclined kid growing up in less than ideal circumstances. . . . Twenty-one years worth of living doesn't usually merit a biography. But hacker Ejovi Nuwere's new memoir is worth a read, not because it describes a particularly unique life, but because of its intimate look into the life of a technically inclined kid growing up in less than ideal circumstances.

    The book isn't focused solely on hacking. Nuwere writes about his mother's battle with drug addiction and her death, his own depression and suicide attempts and life as a street gang member.

    "In many ways technology saved me. It allowed me to escape from a world of violence and negativity into a world that was limitless and unrestrictive," Nuwere said.
