Review

"Stealing the Network: How to Own the Box" is a unique book in the fiction department. It combines stories that are fictional with technology that is real.
--Jeff Moss, Founder and CEO of Black Hat

From the Back Cover

For the very first time the complete Stealing the Network epic is available in an enormous, over 1000 page volume complete with the final chapter of the saga and a DVD filled with behind the scenes video footage!

These groundbreaking books created a fictional world of hacker superheroes and villains based on real world technology, tools, and tactics. It is almost as if the authors peered into the future as many of the techniques and scenarios in these books have come to pass.

This book contains all of the material from each of the four books in the Stealing the Network series.

All of the stories and tech from:

  • How to Own the Box
  • How to Own a Continent
  • How to Own an Identity
  • How to Own a Shadow

Plus:

  • Finally - find out how the story ends! The final chapter is here!
  • A DVD full of behind the scenes stories and insider info about the making of these cult classics!

By R. Wesley McGrew on April 25, 2009
Format: Hardcover
I have just finished a marathon session of reading "Stealing the Network: The Complete Series Collector's Edition" and I have a very conditional review of it: It's a must-have if you don't already own the previous editions of these guilty pleasures. If you are already a fan, however, prepare to be let-down by the compilation.

The stories of the Stealing the Network series entertain in the same way that "war stories" from fellow hackers and security professionals often keeps a more intimate audience's interest: by mixing intriguing situations with juicy technical detail that can serve as a useful take-away. No one will accuse these books of containing fine literature, but that's not really the point. The stories are well written enough to keep you wanting to know what will happen next, while the technical information is as accurate as you're likely to see in fiction. Segments involving hacking are written and illustrated with enough attention to detail and length to serve as introductory educational tutorials for the topics (including web application hacking, reverse engineering, and wireless security). Most of these scenarios are believable as parts of larger-scale operations.

The first book of the series consists of independent short-stories based around characters of the authors' creation. The other three books in the compilation tell an over-arching story of a larger "operation", which involves many characters and their independent stories. The second book, "How to Own a Continent", is probably my favorite, along with the first ("How to Own a Box"), for keeping things simple, technical, and focusing on the individual stories. The third book, "How to Own an Identity" suffers from having worse editing then the rest of the series, and may lose some readers' interest.

Love this series. I could not put these down when they first came out, and the new one could never come out fast enough. The main fact, that all of the stories use legitimate techniques and tools, told by people who have done this type of work, just really makes these stories top notch.

I can not say enough good things about this series of books, except now it is better, that i have all of them in one e-book.

review Stealing the Network: The Complete Series Collector's Edition.

I loved this book. After receiving it, I could not put it away. This is a fiction book based on the current reality of network security. I think it should be called the Network Theft Bible. Why? This book consists of the four previously published books in the Stealing the Network series with the added final conclusion chapter. I also enjoyed the bonus DVD that came with the book.

Each fictional story provides true to life examples of how it could be done in real life, breaching the realm of matrix fiction and database reality. At first when I started reading, I didn't realize all of the stories were fiction. Many of the chapters pointed out gaps in my knowledge of network security.

Stealing the Network would be a great addition to any network security or IT training curriculum. It gives readers the grim reality of the future in IT security. In the right hands, this book could help hack-proof your network, or at least give you a fighting chance. As long as you read between the lines and comprehend the Easter eggs hiding in the examples and scenarios. This book is a great resource for ideas and tools to succeed in your position in network security.

Disclosure: The publisher of the book provided a free copy for this review.

This is a great book. I'm only 1/10th of the way through, I have both a hardcover and kindle copies of this book! These stories are exciting and fast-paced. I find I get completely absorbed in the storyline with this book. I'll have to look for the others in this series.

As someone both technical and new to this series of books, I found the stories fascinating and hard to put down. Completely unlike any technical book I have ever read, and that is a good thing. Don't let the fictional story fool you -- you will find almost as much info here on relevant tools as you might in books that offer how-to tutorials, maybe even more since this book offers great insight into the minds of hackers trying to penetrate your networks, not just information on the tools they will use to do so. If this book were a movie, you might here the narrator whisper during the opening credits, "Only the names have been changed to protect the innocent... and the guilty." One of the few books I have read in years that I literally could not put down.
