The middle of the book gets much more specific showing "Hack Steps" for different components like the client side, sessions, databases, and authentication.
For readers interested in the testing the techniques there is a website offered by the book but it costs $7 an hour to play around on the site. This fee is for keeping the website running apparently, but I thought it would make more sense to have a monthly fee. I did not subscribe to this site myself though because I was more interested in getting a broad overview of website security.
The book is showing its 2011 publication date in some places. For example, IE and Firefox are said to be the dominant browsers while Chrome is a minor player. Additionally, Flash and Silverlight are spoken of as being components of many websites. One issue was I was not really sure where techniques might be outdated and others are still relevant.
I would definitely be interested in a 3rd edition for this book. The authors presented a solid foundation for learning about website security.
One small warning : The book is HUGE.
Great book otherwise.
