Review of Hacking: The Art of Exploitation, 2nd Ed Posted

Amazon.com just posted my five star review of Hacking: The Art of Exploitation, 2nd Ed by Jon Erickson. From the review:

This is the last in a recent collection of reviews on "hacking" books. Jon Erickson's Hacking, 2nd Ed (H2E) is one of the most remarkable books in the group I just read. H2E is in some senses amazing because the author takes the reader on a journey through programming, exploitation, shellcode, and so forth, yet helps the reader climb each mountain. While the material is sufficiently technical to scare some readers away, those that remain will definitely learn more about the craft.

I read this book last summer. What was amazing to me was that all the code compiled and only one program failed to work. I was very impressed since most sample code in many IT Security books does not even compile without some tweaking by the reader.
