Jacked: The Outlaw Story of Grand Theft Auto is a 2012 book by David Kushner that describes the history of Grand Theft Auto and its founders Sam Houser and Dan Houser. It describes some of the controversies that the game went through, such as fights with Jack Thompson, its continual attempts to push up against societal limits, and the attempt to cover up the Hot Coffee mod in the release of GTA: San Andreas.[1]

Reception

The Washington Post says that "David Kushner tries to shed some light on the studio, but his success is limited by Rockstar’s reclusiveness". It also notes the "parallels between this disruptive company and the antiheroes depicted in its games".[2]
