Title: Hacking: The Art of Exploitation
Publisher: No Starch Press
Authors: Jon Erickson
Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
A definitve guide to the cutting edge of hacking.


In this book Mr. Erickson has made accessible to the rest of the world the kind of cutting edge techniques only discussed in tight knit underground hacking groups and private chat rooms in the dark fleshy underbelly of cyberspace. Though he does a laudable job of outlining the fundamentals of computer attacks, this book is most exceptional for it's clear yet technical explanations of some of the most advanced known hacking techniques. This book is a must-buy for script kiddies and uber-haxors alike.

Too basic & not enough information covered


This book is great for beginners who are only interested in perhaps creating a web page (rather than a web site) about themselves. Furthermore, it does not go into enough detail on some topics. For example, it teaches how to create forms on one's web site, but does not go into enough detail on CGI and the programming behind it, making the section on forms practically useless unless you also buy their book "CGI for Dummies." It does, however, cover the basics of text formatting and adding images to one's page, but it does not go into enough detail as to how to add sounds, video, and other media such as Shockwave or Flash. However, it covers frames and the FRAMESET and FRAME tags very well, but again, there is not one mention of inline frames (the IFRAME tag). If you are looking for a basic HTML guide, this is what you need, but be careful not to get confused by the miscellaneous stuff they don't explain enough. I recommend this book to those perhaps making a personal web page.

Good, insightful for the computer literate and illiterate


I have owned several PCs, I recently bought an iMac, and pretty much for the most part knew what to do, but I always knew Macs could do more, and be more friendly to use. This book helped perfectly with some basic problems I faced as well as answer some more higher end questions I had. This book will help the computer literate person who need a quick reference for any questions you have, or if you are buying your first computer, this book will make using it easier and more enjoyable.

Great Reference Guide


The book doesn't go into too much depth on Exchange but it is a great little how-to book on many of the tasks that Exchange Admins will have to do when they install and maintain Exchange. I would highly recommend this as a quick reference to those of you who are familiar with Exchange, however, you might try a different book if you really want to get in depth though.
