...then you need to read the story that inspired Masmune to write his now famous manga/anime.

That story is William Gibson's Neuromancer.

This IS the cyberpunk bible.
It was the first book of its kind and in many ways prophetic of how humans would use, live, and interact in the world of cyberspace/the internet.

A great book in and of itself, it is the first of four novels in this series.

You can buy it at amazon here.
