Clear concise instructions, but no information
on 4 April 2014
This book gives clear instructions on how to perform various tests with Kali (for example, the commands to perform a particular Metasploit exploit injection, or the flags to put with an Nmap scan to perform a Syn/Syn Ack scan) but it dosnt really say why you should do it. I think it would be better for people with less of a background in penetration testing to buy this book alongside a book explaining why they should be doing the things the book tells them to do. For example, get an explanation of what we want to accomplish with Banner Enumeration, and then read the 'recipe' in the cookbook for a type of banner grabbing scan.
For me, though, its perfect. If I know I need to perform a Christmas Tree scan I can flick to the particular recipe and instantly jog my memory on the flags I need to issue to get than particular NMAP function.
