Learn to Hack pulled from Barnes and Noble by:TuxRadar

We’ve just learned that issue 154 of Linux Format, the one with ‘Learn to Hack’ on the cover, was removed from Barnes and Noble bookstores in the US after a complaint was made. We’d like to apologise if you were affected and couldn’t find a copy.
