Not a good audio book

Any additional comments?

Some books should not be audio books. This is one of them. I probably should have known better but it takes way too much writing, visiting sites, downloading tools etc. All fine and good but not appropriate for an audio book.

Very Engaging & Thorough.

Packed with highly relevant info, great for defensive measures, stress testing, and thinking like the enemy.

good basic overview of info security

covers the major topics and provides enough detail for an interested listener to dive in more deeply. because it's a technical subject the audiobook be boring at times but people with some IT background and familiarity with Linux should be able to extract meaning from the audio.

Very Basic and not suitable for audible format

What disappointed you about Hacking: Computer Hacking, Security Testing, Penetration Testing, and Basic Security?

The narrator reading and/or spelling Linux commands is painful.

Has Hacking: Computer Hacking, Security Testing, Penetration Testing, and Basic Security turned you off from other books in this genre?

The book is a good beginners look at hacking using script kiddy tools but that’s about it. Hearing it narrated does not help as much as reading would.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of T. W. Ashworth?

This is not a great topic for audible.

Missed the point

I was expecting a book that's descriptive of hacking techniques/maybe have some good stories.

I would hope one does not expect one to get an audiobook in order to actually try to type commands dictated in the book, not to say that most of the examples given are most likely too precise to stand the test of time (i.e., they'll have been patched long ago).
