Anyone read it? thoughts?

A friend told me to pick it up and I haven't had the chance to dive in yet. I thought before I did, I'd get an opinion or two.

Well i picked this book up from the library a year ago or so. Its not a bad book at all, but it isnt a GREAT book.

The Book is basically like this:

-Explaines the Social Engineering (what needs to be accomplished)

-Shares some stories on how it was done (some are really good ideas)

-Then Discusses how they could have been avoided

Its not a bad book, if u like reading about clever social engineerings cons, I think you would like it.
