The author talks you through downloading the best cracking dictionaries and password cracking tools. It contains information that you can't find anywhere else easily, and it's always practical and pragmatic. The authors focus is on getting the job done... There is no padding or waffle. A must have book.

An excellent book with some good insights but not too much detail into anything. Well worth the read with some helpful advice but not quite enough information for an absolute beginner it's more for a developing intermediate.

Good book as an insight into how someone else runs a pen-test with some interesting ideas and some real-world gotchas and pointers. Very little theory though and not much detail on many of the techniques so if that's what you're after this isn't really the book for you (in fairness, the clue to that should be in the title).

My biggest gripe really is that the edition I had (bought around July 2014) is absolutely *riddled* with typos, from simple misspellings to missing words, very odd phrasing and so on. There are lengthy stretches with one or more on literally every page. It's possible the author's first language isn't English in which case it's a great effort but could've done with a native English speaking friend or editor to give it the once over.

All in all well worth a look for the "plays" themselves though and very reasonably priced as these sorts of books go.

As the title says, its a practical guide. Sometimes the author skips steps and leaves you stranded but, overall, I'm enjoying it very much.
A good guide to know the tools and to get the job done.

Interesting, some good bits but very much of an overview from 1000ft up.

A great book and on the job reference. I have the paper and kindle versions of this book and referred to it recently on a job. I encourage you to read it through quickly then read it again when actually trying to do something. It is a great reference. The authors section on adding additional tools to Kali was worth the purchase price. Also google the author and check out his Blog. Lots of useful stuff there.
