Blog book

A good afternoon's work, but this is unlikely to appear on any academic course reading list.

More Anti-establishment than anything else

There was some good content in the audio book and some key areas covered.

This audio book was extremely leading. Rather than presenting information, possible viewpoints and leaving the conclusion to the listener - this was very anti establishment in the conveyed message shoved down the listeners throat.

I also feel that a fair bit of content was very much on the brink of ethical hacking and closer to general societal issues surrounding technology.

Wouldn’t recommend.

Informative, Interesting & Practical

For the beginner to Cybersecurity & those with a general interest. The explanations about how we're vulnerable have opened my eyes to how we might also protect ourselves more + where to go for further info + community answers.

Misleading

"Reads" like a blog you would send your grandmother to keep her off the internet. I thought this would be slightly more technical but it really just runs through the most basic info that you could find in a run of the mill source online for free.

Good details but with heavy bias

Great book with lots of details explained at the the beginner level. The second part of the book is heavy with best described as “anti-establishment bias”. However, still worth listening too despite the writers rants on government and business. Helpful websites mentioned and explained complex concepts at a laymen level.

No t bad

Decent stories and basic theory. No knowledge or technique discussed beyond basic concepts. Have some interesting, thought provoking ideas and stories of real world situations.

Not "Guide" but an eye opener

I enjoyed it, only until the last sentence where the narrator says "you've been listening to a guide" which I thought nope..Didn't hear any ABC Steps... Ironically a misleading title was used to HACK my purchase decision

Great listen and fascinating info.

I finished listening to Kevin Mitnick's "The Art of Invisibility" and wanted to learn more. This book was a great collection of various topics, and I really enjoyed learning more ways to keep things secure. Definitely thought the stories about epic failures were valuable.

Great introduction to material, but just that

A lot of good stuff is covered in this book but it's just an introduction. As someone studying for my CEH exam this doesn't really help. It was a good listen though.
