This review is from: Kali Linux: Wireless Penetration Testing Beginner's Guide (Paperback)
This book is listed as 261 pages on Amazon but my index in the printed books starts on page 189. Additionally, most of the pages contain large screen shots and sometimes have only one sentence (see attached photo), making the actual length of book roughly around 100 pages.
On the front of the book it says "Learn by doing: less theory, more results". In fact there is about zero theory and often the authors prefer commands and screen shots rather than real explanations. Many times the authors say that explaining some protocol they are talking about is beyond the scope of the book. I was left wondering what they consider the scope of their book to be if explanations are irrelevant.
There are "pop quizes" at the end of the section with some multiple choice answers which sometimes contain obvious errors.
This book may be useful as a tutorial, but I was looking for more in depth coverage about this topic. The approach of just type commands and see what happens was not helpful.
