Brunner, JohnThe Shockwave Rider

This one is SF, and what got me started into computers. It’s set in the near future-now, basically, since Brunner wrote it in the early ’70’s-and it’s eerie (his others-in particular Stand on Zanzibar and The Sheep Look Up-are similarly eerie…). This guy has an ID that enables him to change his life at will-he’s also a hacker genius. This book details his implosion and how he finds himself and saves the world.
