This would maybe be good as a secret santa or office birthday gag present or something in that order, its not particularly forbidden knowledge really, not for instance like a lot of the content of Steal This Book or the publishing trends that launched.

There are adult themes in it, for instance in chapter dealing with how to become a porn star or how to become a mafia boss, neither of which I suspect would be that useful were you in either of those situations for real but to be honest there's as much information on each topic available on a Wiki entry or a quick online browse as there is contained here in. The topics themselves are a bit odd, I think selected randomly as "forbidden", the results are odd, mundanity like how to create water bombs appearing alongside how to throw a punch (not as good as it is described in Real Men Eat Puffer Fish: And 93 Other Dangerous Things To Consider), how to create an atomic bomb (dont worry extremely sketchy detail, literally so as its illustrated in a way even I could do with my limited artistic skill) or perform open heart surgery (specialist rather than forbidden knowledge there I suspect). Some chapters are just plain daft more than anything, like become a religious icon.

Its not all bad, the sections on E-Bay scams, pick pocketing, car sabotage or shop lifting and the like were interesting in so far as I believe they would enable law abidding people to avoid falling prey to any of these things but it all smacks of common sense.

Warning, absolute rubbish! Do not waste your money. The book is nothing but a pile of American high school pranks and stupidity. For instance.. To be a good hacker mix with other hackers and study hacking, or fill public toilet hand dryers with talcum powder. And when you come across something which might be interesting the author just skips through the subject without giving you any new information. Honestly don't waste your money.
