Publisher's Summary

Ethical Hacking: A Comprehensive Beginner’s Guide to Learn and Understand the Realms of Ethical Hacking is an introduction to performing a penetration test, or an ethical hack from beginning to end. 

Hacking can feel daunting at times and even intimidating to beginners, because of the stigma it still carries in society, but this book teaches students how to use hacking tools and techniques properly and ethically. It provides a clear explanation of every step of the way, so that any aspiring hacker can understand all concepts and practice what they learn. 

Every chapter contains examples and definitions that are easy to follow and understand. The student will learn the basics of hacking, how to operate Linux and use terminal commands, followed by an extensive guide on how to perform all the steps of a penetration test.

Here’s what students will gain from listening to this beginner-friendly book:

  • The basics of hacking, terminology, cyberlaw, and what a penetration test actually is.
  • The penetration test methodology. Each chapter will guide you through information gathering techniques, vulnerability scanning, exploitation, and access maintenance.
  • Students will also learn the importance of writing a professional penetration test report. The game is not over when authentications are bypassed and systems controlled.

Open your mind to an entire world of possibilities and learn how to become an ethical hacker!

Best Narration Ever

The Narrator has the most unique voice I’ve ever heard in an audio book. The tempo and frankness of communicating this material is just what the book needed. Even long strings of commands are interesting to listen to. Additionally, this book has been very helpful to me in preparation for taking certification exams in cyber security. A final word on the narrator. This narrator’s voice is golden and I hope to listen to more books that have been narrated by him. There is a genuine sincerity that comes across in the performance. Fantastic!

Overall, a great listen!

I found this book, being the first I've listened to on the topic, very informative and helpful to building a great base. However I really wish that it had a PDF version available with it so I could actually see the lines of codes, and look back on other things easier for reference. To summarize I would say, an amazing listen, however i would recommend getting a physical copy instead if you can.
