    Great book!

    This is a good book for all types of administrators and for those that would like to learn more about hacking. What is it? How does it work? and of course its legality. This book had some mispelling/typos is most of the chapters, that I hope the publisher can fix that up for the next revision. I hope that the readers do not get confuse.

    Alright, this book is very good for a newbie to a intermediate hacker. It is also good for stupid users(all you computer illiterates out there) and lamers, for it gives them a chance to improve themselves. It helps to remove the misconception that hackers are evil. Also gives some general concepts and info on hacking culture and some techniques.

    A Hacker Book for non-nerds

    Ok, at first I thought this book was a bit lame, but I am a network & security admin with a large non-profit organisation. Later I realised that this was the perfect introduction to the ordinary 'man on the internet' and lent it to some friends who we somewhat less 'computer literate'. They loved it, one saying that 'now i understand computers' and another saying about how they had been 'trying to understand the internet' but 'everything they read was gibberish' until they read this book. So this book is great. Buy it if you want to understand computer security but don't understand computers. With sections on MP3s, Virus, Warez and a good section on Prevention, this book is worth every cent of the money it costs.
