Outdated and trite

The content was very, very shallow. You will learn that it is easier to gain physical access to a network if doors are unlocked or no one is at the front desk, for example. The book is full of painfully obvious statements that an author with no practical experience might pass off as wisdom.

As of December 2018 it is also badly out of date. For example, the author talks about the relative ease of attacking WEP compared with WPA. Really? No one, but no one, uses WEP any more, and almost no one uses WPA. WPA2 has been in wide use since 2006 -- 12 years ago! -- but the author could not be bothered to mention it.

The only thing that keeps this groaner out of the one-star cellar are the mention of a couple of useful tools, and a couple of Python code listings that might be useful if you are also reading the book in a text format.
