"The team originally known as the computer crime unit I've been started in 1991 by Robert Mueller who'd been intrigued by the book cuckoo's egg. This inspired a tradition at CCIPs where all new attorneys were given a copy of Cuckoo's Egg to read when they started. I remember at one point being led into a dusty closet at the justice department filled with cartons of the book." - Carlin & Graff, Dawn of the Code War: America's Battle Against Russia, China, and the Rising Global Cyber Threat (2018)

My uncle gave me that book when I was a kid. Perhaps worth re-reading.
