Quick Read - Worth the time

Stealing the Network is a collection of fictional stories, using real technologies/programs to describing hacking/cracking techniques as well as detailing what is running through the persons mind as they go through the steps of a hack. At times it was a little hard to believe, and I think there could have been a little more technical info (although there was a good amount), but overall it is a greate concept for a book and a quick read. Recommended to anyone in or interested in computer security.

Very complete coverage

I just passed my Oracle 1Z0-043 test after using this book as my sole study source, in addition to an Oracle installation I set up at home. The book does a great job of covering all the material I encountered on the test.

Just a Brush Stroke

This is a fine book for light reading on the train, but this is merely brush stroke of information you'll need to know. If that's what the authors intended, then they did a very good job. I give it 2 stars because I'm simply not referring to it anymore after the first go-around.Purchase this book to find your glaring weaknesses. What I mean by that is, if you read something in this book you don't understand, it means you really have a problem with the concept and you need to dig much deeper in another book.

Inspirational Book

I find this book full of inspiration and ideas. It is helpful when you get stuck in a rut to help get you out! The different layouts with the same designs are helpful to get your brain moving and to do your own thing. It is not meant to copy, just to inspire you to open up and do more. It is not a step by step book for you to mimic and I appreciate that. I don't want to see the how to, just the ideas so I can use my own talents. I am looking forward to getting the other book in the series to see what other ideas they have.
