Taken together, the civilizations of Sumer, Assyria, and Persia have helped form the modern makeup of Mesopotamia, western Asia, and the world. However, to really understand why things are the way they are, it’s important to break up this historical timeline and spend some time learning about each society. Only by doing this will you be able to fully appreciate the powerful impact these ancient peoples had on our modern world.

Ever feel like you don’t even own the hardware and software you paid dearly for? Ever get the impression that you have to ask for permission before installing or changing a program on your device? Ever feel like Facebook and Instagram are listening to your conversations to show you relevant ads? You’re not alone. Half-baked products and services that chip away at your sense of ownership, independence and privacy are a part of a global wave of corporate indifference that micromanages and spies on honest, uniformed customers.

This reference is outstanding. It is super easy to read and super easy to follow, even for beginners. Concepts are clearly explained with word illustrations used to help drive the points home. What I really appreciate about this book is that it is set up in the chronological order that you would use when carrying out a pen test. While an experienced person might find this volume basic it gives an outstanding foundation to build from, especially if you're just starting out in this field.

One of the most shocking things about the Persians is how quickly they went from an obscure, powerless, and nomadic tribe to an immense empire that spanned across western Asia, Africa, and parts of Europe. The rise of Cyrus the great, considered the father of Persia, in the seventh century BCE, filled the power vacuum caused by the fall of the Assyrians, and it led to the formation of one of the most powerful empires of the ancient world.

This audiobook invites you on a journey into the human mind and how the emotions, perceptions, expectations, and abilities of that mind can be molded into complying with others’ suggestions. It is a journey that teaches how mind control works, the techniques and methods used to move a person toward a decision, and how some individuals use these methods to prey on others.
