MEDIA REVIEWS
"...this is meant to be a practical book, and it positively encourages you to download, fire up and use the tools mentioned. The first chapter even tells you how to set up your own 'hacking lab'. So whatever your interest in hacking, you'll get the most out of the book if you follow along."--Network Security,Aug 1 2013 "For people looking to become pen-testers, this is an excellent first step. For anyone simply curious about what pen-testing involves and who wants to try some of the techniques for themselves, it may be all you need." - Network Security, December 2011
