About Hacking: Computer Hacking Beginners Guide PDF

The premise of Hacking: Computer Hacking for Beginners Guide by Alan T. Norman is to teach you about terms and language surrounding “hacking” in general. In specific Alan takes on the daunting task of trying to espouse ethics and morals surrounding hacking, including Black Hat, Grey Hat and White Hat hacking and what the differences are. He also takes on the task of teaching you C++ at a very introductory but functional level so that you actually learn how to program and debug your own key-logger.

For a small book with lofty goals, he accomplishes these tasks surprisingly well. It is clear through reading the book that Alan is a teacher, and he does a good job at training you about your subject and then accomplishing your task. I was actually surprised by how much I learned. The context of this statement is that I am a cyber-security professional and a training professional as well.

This is a really excellent book. I was surprised at how clearly Alan elucidates what hacker really means, and goes to great pains to explain Black Hats, Grey Hats, and White Hats. Alan tells you in words and figures that there are no short cuts; it is all about learning and experience. He takes a far more ethical bent than I would have expected. This is a great beginner book for anyone who is curious, wants to know more, and wants to defend themselves. This is even a good book if you have less than ethical motives, and just need to know what words mean and how to get started in hacking.

While it is clear to me that Alan is not a native US English speaker from some of the expressions and mannerisms in his language, he is still quite clear in expressing himself, and other than a few linguistic idioms there is no confusion as to what he is explaining to you, the reader, and what he wants you to do. Typographical and grammatical errors are few and far between, so it has been well edited.

Now, I read the book on a combination of Samsung S-7 smart phone, Amazon Kindle, and computer screen. What I can tell you for sure is that the diagrams in the book, the code examples, are going to be too small to see well on a small screen. You can magnify them quite a bit and they are viewable, but if you really want to get everything you need out of this book, you should be on a full size screen – e.g. 11 inches or bigger. Since theoretically you should be doing everything on a computer anyway, not a tablet, that should not present a problem as you can simply read the book in a Kindle reading app; but it is a factor if you are a commuting reader or a work reader like I am.
This book is like putting on a diving mask for the first time, and catching that exciting glimpse of a whole WORLD under the sea where before you just saw a mass of water. Hopefully the folks starting out and growing up will utilize this and other books to realize that there is a bigger world out there, and that it is navigable, but like anything else what you get out of it depends on what you put into it.

You are not going to be able to pull off the next big department store cyber-crime after reading this book. But you are going to know a lot more about the exact tools and steps you will need for either ethical or non-ethical hacking. The book does not make a moral choice for you, that is of course up to you. But it does go a long and succinct way to start you on a much longer journey. And if by chance you happen to casually meander in to the dark underbelly of the digital universe, at least this book is a signpost to guide you.

I applaud Alan for his work in getting you started on the road to discovering a bigger world.
Highly recommended as an introductory book for hacking.
