This book is intended to be an exceptionally delicate yet exhaustive manual for the secrets in the universe of hacking and infiltration testing. It is particularly written to help you ace the essential steps and hidden secret recipes needed to finish a hack or entrance test without overpowering you. When you complete this book, you will have a strong comprehension of the infiltration testing procedure and you will be okay with the hidden secrets and essential devices. This book is also about hacking ethically and the science of testing your computers and network for security vulnerabilities and plugging the holes you find before the bad guys get a chance to exploit them.

While the book contains some useful information, its writing and performance are so bad as to render it almost useless. The performer has a tooth whistle that can actually cause headaches if listened to for long. This is totally unbelievable! Second, and more outlandish, the writers have substituted synonyms for the usual terms on a massive scale throughout the book. It is hard to understand why they did this, unless it was some misguided attempt to hide the copying of text from elsewhere. Otherwise, it simply makes everything more difficult. Listening to this is an exercise in figuring out the right synonym, simply to be sure you know what they are talking about.
So many things are wrong with this book! First of all, she (if this is a real name) could have not substituted the weird synonyms. Second, a lot of the material is repetitious, and a lot is extraneous. Also, she could have not claimed that this is a book for beginners. I can't imagine how someone without some knowledge of the field already could get anything out of the book.
No. Never. His monotonous style would be bad enough, even without the tooth whistle. I really don't understand how Audible accepted this performance. Perhaps there is no quality control.
If you can stand the obnoxious presentation, there is actually some useful information for those attempting to hack or protect systems. It's already getting dated, however. Also, there's really not much here that can't be found elsewhere, in much more accessible form.
This is a great book for masochists. This is the worst book I have ever encountered on Audible. Audible ought to listen to this and determine whether they want to continue to offer it.
This book has promisingly interesting information, but the "headache inducing" whistling is very annoying and almost makes this un-listenable.
Yes, yes, yes. As stated before, the whistling is very annoying.
Yes, but not in Audiobook format.
The advise on how to start learning to Hack computer networks.
Yes, but not one so step by step Linix command prompt intensive. Hearing command lines read can not be made interesting.
No way, no how
I think this is just one of those books you have to be able to see the text to get the full value from it. If you try to follow the command prompt entries from audio only. you'll be rewinding, and guessing as to what the actual syntax is supposed to be.
I was not able to listen to this book for more than 2 minutes because every time the narrator says a word containing an 'S', my ears hurt.
All 'S'es are high pitched whistling sounds.
Wish I could get my money back.
I cannot say anything about the story, because I cannot get through this book.
I wanted to listen to this content but every "S" is an ear piercing whistle. It is PAINFUL to listen to this book. The narrator did not read well. Multiple edits to fill in lines where apparent through out the audio presentation. I also felt that the reader didn't have any understanding of the content they where sharing. Acronyms were forced and you could just tell from inflection during highly technical componants the reader had no idea what they where reading.
Avid Tech Nerd, Security Engineer and Hacker..
Outdated, Still talking about Backtrack as if it was new, it's been outdated for 3+ years (Kali, it's replacement is already on version 2.0)
The narrator sounds as if he's reading, no emotion, it just drones on..
it does/would provide some "good" information, especially for a new Computer user.
The record quality was very poor and thus there was a hissing on every "s" word that was very annoying and impossible to listen to. I bet the book would have been interesting but couldn't listen to it. I tried multiple speakers and devices with the same issue.
"Is this book a translation?"
I got as Chapter 2, and the language is bizarre!IP Location instead of IP Address. Various uses of Order, Charge or Summons instead of Command.VMWare Picture instead of VMWare ImageAnd most confusing? the acronym DNS explained as Entryway in Spacename Framework!The content is good, but impossible to follow! And have to agree with the other reviews, the tooth whistle is bl**dy annoying!
Maybe with either a better translation and better narrator.
