Reviewed in Australia on 19 November 2018
I came to this book having listened to some podcasts and read a few blogs and books on social engineering, including all of Kevin Mitnick's books. This book is a real eye opener and is very methodical in its treatment of the topic. Everything in the book seems genuine and rooted in the real experience of the author. I've no doubt that if you put into practice just a small number of his techniques, you would be successful. Its got practical uses also outside of the area of penetration testing too - such as for getting a better understanding of how to more effectively deal with high pressure situations.

Quality book from one of the best in the industryReviewed in the United Kingdom on 28 November 2018
First of all this book is so well written and it comes with a twist of comedy (insert random knowledge tips)! The book puts you in a great position to sway anyone with the purpose of getting what you want. Additionally, it prepares you to identify various kinds of manipulation. Finally, it really makes you think about communication in a completely different way... For the better or the worse, as a result of reading this book I now end up studying every message (with no hidden meaning) as if it had 1000 meanings .. thanks, Christopher :)
Best book there is on SE!Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 6 January 2019
This book is worth it's weight in gold. There is nothing else like it on SE that I've come across. Even if you are not interested in cyber security, this book is a fantastic read and very, very easy to understand.
Another great bookReviewed in the United Kingdom on 15 February 2019
As in the previous books the writer went into great depth in describing each situation. It is well done research on Social Engineering and it’s a easy read! I truly recommend this like a previous books by the writer. I’m looking forward to next book.
Perfect read for wannabe social engineers, and those working in SE alreadyReviewed in the United Kingdom on 23 March 2019
This is a great introduction to social engineering, or reminder for those already working in the field. The examples and real life stories help bring the points raised to life. I can’t recommend this book enough.
