My only criticism lies in the quality of the material not the content (5 star content). The printing is blurred on multiple pages and cover is awkward (after opening once the cover will forever curl out). This is book I would like to keep forever, it would have been nice if it came in hard cover.
Lyon's book provides a detailed and informative presentation to nmap and its many uses in the professional IT arsenal. While, a fair bit of the material can be gleaned from a wide-assortment of sources on the net (somewhere in those tubes) - including from Lyon's own site, [...] - this book coalesces and distills the material into a tight, cohesive and entertaining presentation with added tidbits that only the author of such a powerful tool might know. And since, like any good tool, using nmap can be dangerous w/o a good user manual, this book provides the need-to-know information for efficient use of nmap.
Hell, even if the book sucked, the guy has done such a valuable service by providing this free, open-source tool it seems only fitting that we throw him a couple of bucks for all of his effort. But the book rocks, so it's a two-fer: good-info AND smug feeling of satisfaction that $$ is well spent on someone who actually did something.
So: If you want to be in the know you need this book. If you want to know what is on your network you need this book. If you want to keep ahead of those damned script-kiddies you need this book.
adept at utilizing Nmap for my Network Administration and Security scanning needs. I was wrong.
A GREAT BOOK! Buy it!
