    Highly recommend! Could not put down...

    Social Engineering: The Art of Human Hacking by Chris Hadnagy is the prime handbook for social engineers. It's an exciting look into the art of social engineering from the inside out. The provided guidelines and in-depth insider tips make this book a must have for beginners and experts alike. The ideas presented are well thought out and give a very practical look into the daily practices of social engineers. The book's informative approach and flowing directive make it a read that I simply could not put down. I especially enjoyed Chapter 4 about Pretexting. It is great to see Chris's fresh approach to social engineer methodologies, and security through education... He gives you insight into the techniques being used by real social engineers to help in protecting yourself from attacks. I would definitely recommend this book to my family, friends, and co-workers. Thank you Chris, once again, for providing the Social Engineering community with an excellent resource of information!
