The Hackers' Handbook is, while being a delightfully dense and complex book, also quite readable.
It is not overly large at approximately 300 pgs in length but I still feel there is enough information in it to last a life time.
The book is split in four major sections:
- An Introduction into Hacking
- Tools, Techniques & Threats
- Cyber-War and Cyber-Terrorism
- The Future
The book is both educational from a technical and historical standpoint, in that it documents real attacks, people and institutions involved.
I really can recommend this book to anyone with a technical background, it certainly is not a book for anyone who is looking for surface analysis from a laymans perspective.
So this is a book that digs deep and effectively takes the reader into a 'next level' understanding of how hackers work and think.
Below I shall list some of the Highlights from the book:
