    "I have recently become interested in hacking, and I saw this book mentioned on a forum. So far it has been really helpful in learning the basics. It lays everything out in a way that is easy to follow but doesn't talk down to you. "

    "I found this book very thorough and easy to read. The ideas expressed are highly advanced and yet I was able to understand most of it. The hard part is just the speed of technology itself and I found it difficult to keep up with which hacks and exploits still work."

    "To me it looks like everyone is trying to be a hacker these days. Always looking for an edfge or advantage than the rest."

    "I know how to use the pwn-ing software, but, I don't always know how to interpret it. I found this to be a helpful guide to getting started with interpretation, but, by no means is it the final solution to all. "

    "Interesting book and helpful for beginners like me. I didn't know what to expect but as a beginner I wanted something that could take me step by step. It won't make you can expert but it provides great starting points and explanations. "

    "In my field (IT), this topic is very relevant and interesting to me and this book gives a great explanation on hacking and pen testing. It's quite a complete book at almost 200 pages and has a large section on social engineering, which is, let's face it, the biggest risk. Highly recommend taking a look at this!"

    "This e-book doesn't actually teach you much. It's also somewhat hard to understand. Lots of jargon not intended for the average no nothing person. This book is more theoretical and not very practical. Look for another book if you want to know how not to get hacked."
