    Story

    From elicitation, pretexting, influence and manipulation all aspects of social engineering are picked apart, discussed and explained by using real world examples, personal experience and the Science & Technology behind them to unraveled the mystery in social engineering. Kevin Mitnick - one of the most famous social engineers in the world - popularized the term social engineering. He explained that it is much easier to trick someone into revealing a password than to exert the effort of hacking.

    Story
    Where does Social Engineering: The Art of Human Hacking rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Very solid story and illustrative explanations on Social Engineering. I would rate this a 9 out of 10 on explanation of the subject matter. Voice acting was pleasant and continued well throughout the audio book.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    No real characters as this was more of a manual of methods than a true story, but it did have small stories to illustrate Social Engineering points.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The stories of the 10 million dollar bank heist.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, it was that good. Unfortunately, life gets in the way.


    Any additional comments?

    Would like a British female voice as an option to listen to this book. There is just something sexy about that and it compliments the subject.

  • The Future of the Mind: The Scientific Quest to Understand, Enhance, and Empower the Mind

    Story
    (391)

    For the first time in history, the secrets of the living brain are being revealed by a battery of high-tech brain scans devised by physicists. Now what was once solely the province of science fiction has become a startling reality. Recording memories, telepathy, videotaping our dreams, mind control, avatars, and telekinesis are not only possible; they already exist.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, but I have few friends that are as interested in this than I am.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    There was no central "characters", this was more of an overview of where the newly discovered dynamics of the mind/brain may come into play with a potential singularity. My favorite part of this book was the insight of merging of our minds (souls?) with the hard analytical science of what exactly we are.


    Have you listened to any of Feodor Chin’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, this is my first time listening to his performance. It was well done, smooth and clear. I do sorta wish the author read his own book as Michio Kaku has a good speaking voice as well.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Understanding the matter in your quantum mind


    Any additional comments?

    I gained some metric of insight on the best approaches of reverse engineering of the human mind. I do wish more discussion was centered around consciousness as this topic was the motivation of the crux of the book.
