Review:

A sprightly lexicon.

--William Safire, New York Times Magazine

For anyone who likes to have slippery, elastic fun with language, this is a time for celebration...The New Hacker's Dictionary...is not only a useful guidebook to very much un-official technical terms and street tech slang, but also a de facto ethnography of the early years of the hacker culture.

--Mondo 2000

My current favorite is 'wave a dead chicken.' New to you? You've waved a dead chicken when you've gone through motions to satisfy onlookers (suits?), even when you're sure it's all futile. Raymond's book exhilarates...The New Hacker's Dictionary, though, is not for skimming. Allot, each day, a half hour, severely timed if you hope to get any work done.

--Hugh Kenner, Byte

Synopsis:

This edition of the hacker's own lexicon includes more than 100 new entries and updates and revises 200 more. Historically and etymologically more detailed than its predecessor, it supplies additional background on existing entries and clarifies the origins of several important jargon terms (overturning a few longstanding folk etymologies).
