Description

The first book to reveal and dissect the technical aspect of many social engineering maneuvers...

From elicitation, pretexting, influence, and manipulation, all aspects of social engineering are picked apart, discussed, and explained by using real world examples, personal experience, and the Science & Technology behind them to unraveled the mystery in social engineering.

Kevin Mitnick - one of the most famous social engineers in the world - popularized the term social engineering. He explained that it is much easier to trick someone into revealing a password for a system than to exert the effort of hacking into the system. Mitnick claims that this social engineering tactic was the single-most effective method in his arsenal. This indispensable book examines a variety of maneuvers that are aimed at deceiving unsuspecting victims, while it also addresses ways to prevent social engineering threats.

Very Interesting, Very Detailed, Very Long.

I first became aware of the concept of Social Engineering when I read “Ghost in the Wires” and I was blown away! It was very exciting – that guy has GUTS!

I wanted to read more about the technique, not necessarily with the goal of learning how to social-engineer people in mind, but rather to try and recognize the signs so I can detect if ever I am being social-engineered!

This book is quite thorough and there is no denying the material is interesting, but I found it too long. There was too much “telling me about what I’m about to read” which I found completely redundant and annoying. Don’t tell me about what you are going to write, just write it and let me read it!!

Aside from that complaint, the book had me hooked.

Great Book for Beginners, But Hard to Come Back To

This book is a good reminder of how to be more secure with your personal information.
If you are a beginner into the subject of social engineering, this would be a great starting point. You can learn about micro-expressions, different types of programs that social engineers can use to gather your personal information, how pre-texting can help you gain the trust of strangers and more.

The best part of the book is when he talks about his security audit for a company where he attempts to retrieve information from the CEO's computer. In this part he explains how he gathered information of the target and managed to gain his trust to have him download a malicious PDF file.

If you have read around, listened to podcasts about this subject, or done any slight research on this topic, I would say to look elsewhere. The author pats himself in the back too much. Straight from the start he's talking about himself of how good he is at social engineering. Throughout the book he will continue with the same writing. He will also end chapters with a laundry list of what is coming next. "In chapter 4, I'll talk about _____, then in chapter 5 I will talk about ____, after chapter 5 I will talk about _____." It almost feels as though I am reading a rushed high school student's paper who is trying to meet the word count for the assignment.
There is a lot of repetition in the book, the author will constantly repeat himself about the same information he gave 1-5 chapters ago.

This book is 14 hours of a robotic voice. It takes a lot just to muster listening to it. At first I was fine with listening to it, but the further I got the harder it became to come back and try to finish it. A good book should be enjoying to listen to, this one felt like a chore to go back to just to finish.

Very nice introduction to social engineering

What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

I wanted an introductory book into social engineering, and this book does this job perfectly. There is an explanation of all the sides of the art, and direction for further info if you're interested to dive deeper into anything in particular.
Many examples / real stories makes this listen even easier to follow. Would recommend this audio to anyone.
Additionally, I've discovered that like most people, I was stupid enough to have the same password / user-name on many sites. And how easy it is for anyone (unfriendly, or just bored) to mess up my life. Well, not anymore... or at least not that easy. That alone definitely worth a "credit".

An Unlistenable Con...

This book sounds like it was written by a "get rich easy" infomercial done by a legal team and read by a robot... Empty, repetitive, and bland. Just horrendous. Time well wasted.

Some interesting content

Is there anything you would change about this book?

It's way too full of filler. A good editor could cut out at least 50% of this book.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

At the risk of redundancy...make it shorter!

What three words best describe A. T. Chandler’s performance?

computer like voice.

Do you think Social Engineering: The Art of Human Hacking needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

No. It was really too much "fluff" as it is.

Any additional comments?

If you are really interested in the topic, you will probably make it through this book...but if you aren't really interested, I'll bet $10 you won't make it all the way through. It's a tough slog at times.

Interesting concepts, poor writing

The entire book should really be a manual, as it can be condensed into a few shorter chapters. The topic has high potential for a rich narration filled with examples and considerations. The book however falls short on that front, often resorting to enumerating what is going to be discussed next, or summarizing what was just said. Also I found it especially irritating that the victim of engineering attacks was more likely a 'she' than a 'he', whereas the social engineer was more likely portraied as a 'he'.

Book Is a Reflection of the Topic, One Giant Con

The book contains very little substance, and subsequently repeats itself without providing value. The author tries to substantiate a generalized approach to social engineering with debunked psychology and flowery language. It's apparent the author has no formal education, and this is just a continuation of what he does for a living, conning people. This book want you to believe social engineering is different than what con men do. It isn't and no amount of contrite language or wrongly applied psych studies will change that. This book is rubbish.

Love! will be listening to again highly recommend

The writing is just great, the author clearly understands people;p. Your average joe can understand and follow along, however, its not dumbed down nor does it over explain or over simplify any points or concepts as to lose the more experienced readers.
Also i have to say the Reader did his job so well! i actually had to go back and look to see if the author was doing the reading because of the interest he had and also demanded in me as a listener. Animated and well read. overall i can actually say i learned things i will probably use the rest of my life and that is exactly what i was hoping to get out of this:)

New name for old concepts ...

Concepts I heard already a decade ago in selling and NLP. Almost nothing new presented under just a catchy title. Story is too self-centered, like look at me doing this and that. First two chapters are about what the book is going to be about, so a lot of time and space are wasted. Couldn't finish.

good but too verbose

the books delivers good insights into the world of social engineering but for me it was too verbose. I feel the same content can be delivered in a more condensed format

Disappointing

... and also way too long. The content of this book could've been boiled down to less than half. Furthermore, the addotional material promised in the description has not been delivered. Do not recommend!

Doesn`t meet my expectations

Doesn`t meet my expectations, after reading the description.
Nonetheless there were some useful thoughts and it gives a good overview.
