Well today is your lucky day then, because listening to this book will get your feet wet in the world of computer hacking, but won't overwhelm you at the same time. This is a beginner's guide that I created strictly for people like you to get introduced to the basics of what hacking is all about! This book contains very basic information on the ins and outs of beginner level hacking. There are many misconceptions and ideas that people have about the world of hacking, and you are going to learn a little bit about them. Hacking is an extremely complex activity that requires a lot of skills and knowledge. This book will give you a basic idea about what hacking is and how it can be done. In a world where no information is private, hacking is a useful tool. It's illegal in some cases but that depends on the way it is used. Hacking is only beneficial when you use it to make the world a better place. The final choice of what you will do with the information that is provided in this book is entirely up to you. Hacking is not easy. It will require a lot of time and patience in order to master it. There are many risks involved in hacking and you should consider them all before you start on your journey as a hacker. There are various kinds of hacking that are possible. You can easily hack someone's laptop or mobile phone if you have the requisite knowledge. This book will guide you on how to secure your own networks and also how to start with hacking basics such as figuring out a password. The unrealistic expectations that you might have garnered over the years might not be true at all. Hacking is hardly about being a vigilante. In most cases, hacking into extremely safe networks is almost impossible. If you want to satiate your thirst for knowledge in relation to hacking then this is the right book for you.

    "Definitely recommend in your hacker library"

    I think this read has been crucial for me. I recently got hacked and the incident made me want to understand the mind of hackers so that I will also get to understand why they do those things. And this book has been helpful on that aspect. It has been beginner friendly and made me comprehend a lot of things involved in hacking. I think it has been researched intensively and been written in a way that comprehension will be possible for all listen, newbies or not. Definitely recommend in your hacker library. Good references to further knowledge.

    "All of us can become hackers"

    This book made me realized and understood that the word hacking is not generally disruptive or troublesome as what I knew before. With this guide, I've known the intention of hacking is for the improvement of a situation, rather than of taking advantage of a situation. Hacking is actually all about programming. The book begins by explaining the effects of hacking from a global perspective and it explains hacking in its positive light.

    Any additional comments?

    I found this book with my friends, and I read the first part. For me, hacking is mostly an unknown area, and this listening is something completely new to me. This book is great for beginners, and everything is very clearly explained. I've learned a lot of new stuff about hacking, but the most important thing is that now I know how to protect my PC. Indeed, very useful reading!

    "Hackers beware!"

    Hackers beware! This book is very informative and helps anyone using a computer to be less vulnerable! I found this book to be written for two audiences: the personal computer user and businesses who depend on digital technology. It is a valuable MUST read for any company. It lays out the entire process for evaluating, hiring and protecting a company’s digital information all through a very thorough blueprint it lays out. I do not have a technical computer background but I found this to be well written in understanding all the terminology, nuances, and steps to keeping my personal information protected.

    "Wonderful and a must read lecture"

    My fiance just gave me this book yesterday night and i really enjoyed listening this book and in a unexpected way learned some simple methods about security, i didn't think it was that easy to be able to ruin someone's computer by just a few click and code lines. About the book i never thought i will totally understand it but i did it was really well explained and easy to enjoy this e-book.

    "Solid introduction to hacking techniques"

    Good overview and this book seems to cover the basics and has enough information to at least know where to start finding out more about advanced topics he book was read within one day and by that I mean a hour or two. This is the smallest book that I own and the content is very limited!

    "Thirst for knowledge"

    A comprehensive introduction to the techniques of exploitation and creative problem-solving methods commonly referred to as "hacking." It shows how hackers exploit programs and write exploits, instead of just how to run other people's exploits. The first half of the book is dedicated to educating you on what hacking is, clearing up truth from fiction, bringing you up to speed on what to expect and giving you an overall picture of what the world of hacking is all about. This book explains the technical aspects of hacking, including stack based overflows, heap based overflows, string exploits, return-into-libc, shellcode, and cryptographic attacks .This book contains proven steps and strategies on how to become a true hacker novice. This book is not all inclusive by any means.

    "Great guide and explanation."

    This is a decent book for any individual who truly doesn't know about every one of the types of hacking and furthermore gives us an interesting approach to shield ourselves from being hacked. I truly like innovation however most of the times I felt as if I am not coping up when it comes to a portion of usable innovation nowadays and how things are being done. This book lifted me up and it enabled me to adapt up to the complexities of hacking. I'm truly a novice in this subject however it was absolutely fascinating idea I can’t let go

    "It is a very good book with great content"

    There are a considerable measure of books available planned for individuals who need to hack. A great deal of them make them thing in like manner: they trick you into intuition there's any restricted to hack. The truth of the matter is that that is not a story which is truly compatible with reality. Hacking: The Ultimate Beginner's Guide to Learn Hacking Effectively rather shows you to be the best programmer you can be, on the grounds that it doesn't hold your hand: it shows you wide ideas and rouses you to guide yourself going ahead with your hacking training.

    "Great overview"

    This book is basically divided parts, each parts being very important and independent. The first part simply deals with the history and the world of hacking. The second part on the other hand talks about the functional art of hacking various systems. The third part has to do with ethical hacking; what to do and what not to do.

    It is a very good book with great content. Highly recommended!

    "Hacking tools and terms"

    With the help of that book, I realized that it is not something impossible and not only for some genius ones. This book has turned out to be the most beneficial book so far in my learning experience. It is a perfect guide to understand and know the ways of hacking and the ethics that are to be followed and creating your own keylogger.
