This is a very good basic introduction into hacking and pen testing geared towards the novice. It was a little oversimplified for my knowledge level but that is not the authors fault since he obviously wrote the book as an introduction for those who aren't new to the subject matter. There is a wide range of topics covered in here. There is more than enough to get the average person who knows nothing about hacking interested in learning how to protect themselves from what is a genuine and real threat that we should all be aware of and protect ourselves against.
