Before every 13-year-old with an iPhone fancied himself an Internet wizard, a group of misfit technophiles figured out how to hack and exploit the largest communication system at the time—the telephone system. Phil Lapsley’s newest book, Exploding the Phone: The Untold Story of the Teenagers and Outlaws Who Hacked Ma Bell, chronicles the so-called “phone phreaks” who hacked the mainframe at the rise of AT&T’s monopoly and the war that followed between the phone company, the hackers, the FBI and even the mob.
