This review is from: Practical Lock Picking: A Physical Penetration Tester's Training Guide (Paperback)
seems to be full of information which being new to lock picking is way ahead from other books on the subject diagram and pictures very good.

But like other review what has happened to the DVD ? I have contacted Amazon to find out what has happened to DVD.

Update there is no DVD with book. There is a web site on the back of the book with information, Having now done the exercises in the book it just getting better increased to 5 stars

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book for pins, wafers... but NO lever locks!, 12 Dec 2012

This review is from: Practical Lock Picking: A Physical Penetration Tester's Training Guide (Paperback)
This is a very well illustrated and written book, I couldn't find fault with it...as far as it goes. It contains massive detail on tumbler/pin and wafer locks. However please note that this book seems to have been written for the U.S. market and has NO information on mortice locks/lever locks. To quote: "A handful of other designs (of lock) are prevalent in certain international regions. Lever locks, for example, are an older design originating in the 17th century with keys that tend to be larger and their operation more cumbersome than more recent designs. These are a common sight in Europe, central Asia and parts of South America." That's it for lever locks.

To summarise, a superb book for pin and wafer locks, but no use for lever locks.

This review is from: Practical Lock Picking: A Physical Penetration Tester's Training Guide (Paperback)
Flick through the boring first 10 pages to get to the meat of the book, very well illustrated, clear and concise - a perfect introduction to lock mechanisms and picking techniques.

Nice illustrations, well explained. A delight to read. I'm dipping in and out of it. I wish i'd had this as a kid.
