Amazon.com just posted my three star review of Professional Penetration Testing by Thomas Wilhelm. From the review:
I had fairly high hopes for Professional Penetration Testing (PPT). The book looks very well organized, and it is published in the new Syngress style that is a big improvement over previous years. Unfortunately, PPT should be called "Professional Pen Testing Project Management." The vast majority of this book is about non-technical aspects of pen testing, with the remainder being the briefest overview of a few tools and techniques. You might find this book useful if you either 1) know nothing about the field or 2) are a pen testing project manager who wants to better understand how to manage projects. Those looking for technical content would clearly enjoy a book like Professional Pen Testing for Web Applications by Andres Andreu, even though that book is 3 years older and focused on Web apps.
This is my 300th Amazon.com book review. I wish I had planned the review schedule such that I reviewed a five star book for number 300.
I reported my 200th book review for Building an Internet Server With FreeBSD 6 in August 2006.
