Aharoni has founded projects like the BackTrack and Kali Linux Open Source distributions, and the Exploit Database, as well as Offensive Security - a leading infosec company, well-known for its industry-defining security certifications and training. Between exploit writing and cataloging, penetration testing, Kali development and tinkering with hardware, Aharoni enjoys the evangelical role of convincing anyone who will listen about the virtues of Kali Linux.

I see however that some users were expecting more from this book i.e penetration testing tools. They are not covered in this book. Consider it an official insightful manual of the distribution and not the tools.
This is not a hacking book. You won't learn about pen testing or Metasploit. This is a book to help you get familiar with Kali Linux OS (Which is pretty important if you plan to be using it every day.)
This book DOES NOT go into pen testing or the functionalities of Kali. There are several other resources for that.
If you want to learn about Kali and how powerful it is outside of the pentesting features, this is the book for you. The information within is very useful. Some sections go into detail, while others will get you started and give you the resources to dig deeper on your own. I highly recommend this book if you aren't an expert with Linux. I'm using it to prep for the PWK course so that I go into with as many tools as possible.
