Very good book. Not as detailed as some other Pentesting books, but certainly worth a read. Very thoughtful book, especially good for beginners who are getting in to Pentesting or know a little.

I've been in the IT security game for many years and this is a well written introduction to a topic vital to every organisation, and indeed individual, in today's cyber world.

The author does a great job of summarising, and indeed clarifying, terms and topics I've heard many, many people use/talk to incorrectly. I especially like the fact that to be a successful security testing professional, Patrick reiterates the need for sound ethics and a high moral standing, and that to be a great penetration tester you simply cannot afford to omit any of the stages (the report writing being the most common!).

Whether you're looking for a place to start in becoming an IT security (penetration tester) professional or simply wanting to understand a little more about the art of cyber attack and defence, I'd recommend this book as a great stating point and/or refresher.

A great starting out book, though some content is derived from the use of Windows XP (old technology). A lot of the information is still fairly current and can be adapted for present day use.

The book lacks details and is not coherant in telling the story. Also it leaves you in the middle of details without showing you the way out in a proper and detailed explanation

This book is absolutely fantastic for beginners. The first parts you read the author gives you a little introduction as to what hacking is and the ethics of hacking and sums up 'White Hats' and 'Black Hats' quite nicely. Surprisingly this book isn't too technical and is VERY easy to follow and understand.

There is a lot of times during the book that the author says 'But this is out of the scope of the book'. Don't knock that though, this is a beginners guide after all. Will you be an expert after reading this book? Hell no! But will you know some of the basics? YES! I personally think that this book will give you a 'feel' for pentesting, making you decide whether you would like to take it further. It is highly advised that you research some of the stuff that is mentioned in this book. Plus, practising how to research efficiently will help you out in your career as a Ethical Hacker.

After reading this book I have now gone on to read more advanced books, and will be studying for the OSCP cert this summer. This book is a must have for anybody wanting to know the basics of hacking.

This book is a perfect book to get you started in the world of (Ethical)hacking and Pentesting.
It covers the following four step:

-Reconnisance

-Exploitation
-Maintaining access

Each chapter is explained to a good extend providing tools and examples to get started.
