Review Text

  • By Janik on 7 March 2016

    This is a great book if you want to protect your system from hackers or learn more about the topic but a basic knowledge about computers is needed to fully understand everything covered in this book so I'd recommend a different book if you don't know the basics about computers. But apart from that this book is very informative and well written.

    It's a bit light-weight. There's more/better information on the web!

    Greek Tragedy without the entertainment.

    It's a good introduction to the theme.

  • By anonymous on 28 May 2016

    A good place to start for information on ethical hacking, bit of an American bias on information though.
