For a non-techie, Deaver does a great job of explaining what a computer BIOS is, how hackers and crackers of all sorts had thick calluses on their fingertips because of how much time they spent in front of their computers, and how hackers stash their tools of the trade all over the Internet so that they can quickly grab them feaver any location in the world.
