Good

Wow! This is a good guide. I was provided with the know-how required to jump-start my career or gain a better understanding of offensive security. The book also walks me through each of the steps and tools in a straightforward manner, allowing listeners to understand how the output from each tool can be fully utilized in the subsequent phases of the penetration test.

Road to penetration testing

A great introduction to penetration testing. I love the hands on approach to learning. I am yet to complete it but have a good feeling about how it progresses. Definitely, good for beginners as it guides them from the absolute basics. All in all, it lays out a great foundation to learn about penetration testing.

Good hacking guide

What I like best about this is that it assumes you have virtually no knowledge of the security field, can operate a computer with some skill, and understand how to follow directions. The high-level view is really best for the true novice and helps to take away some of the intimidation of the field.

Amazing!

This is amazing! This book has opened my Linux experience in such a way that I spend more and more time in Linux and have even made a list of more books to get based on some of the recommendations that are made along the way in this one.

I like this book

Since this is my first serious exploration of this topic I've just listened through the book with my terminal open, entering the example commands when appropriate and discovering what they do. I will admit that some of this stuff goes over my head but I'm okay with that because the stretch means I'm learning something. Great listen!

Nice guide

This book is not going to make you a super hacker or anything like that but it is well written, has practical and useful information. The chapters are the perfect length, not too long, not too short.

I highly recommend this book for the newcomer to hacking or information security. In fact, I will be using it in my "Introduction to Kali Linux" class next semester at the local college where I teach.

A good book

This was a good book for beginners. The terms are easy to understand and follow. The author explains everything thoroughly. My skills are a little ahead of this, it still gets four stars because it is informative and good to use as a quick reference guide.
