Do you spend a lot of time on the computer like I do? Whether it is for work or for pleasure, hacking and hackers are a dominating subject matter that is often mentioned but equally often misunderstood. This is why I chose to read Hacking, and think that you should too.
Hacking is fascinating, and so are the tools and potential applications of it – and this book is a great place for even the novice to learn some tips and tricks that can be useful. Sure, I am not saying that after reading it you will be an expert on the subject matter, but I do think, that it can point you in the right direction if you are interested in wanting to learn more.
