An oldie but goodie

This is a compelling read, at least for a reference book. I read the first 10 chapters in one sitting, thinking I would only read one or two. I haven't let it out of my sight in the three years since. If you need a JavaScript reference, get this one.

A great how-to tutorial and excellent desktop reference!

I started using Mozilla Firefox when it was just a little Firebird (original name of the app), and began with Thunderbird when it was just a hatchinling. I was attracted by the open source philosophy, tabbed browsing, and excellent security features. The ease of importing all my settings, email folders, bookmarks and cookies made the transition a snap. The only missing element was an excellent hand-hoder book to guide me through the process of discovering all the apps had to offer. Firefox and Thunderbird Garage does an excellent job of filling the gap.

Whether you use Windows, Mac OS 10.1, or Linux, this book is for you. Detailed explanations of browser and email features, why you want them and how to use them, make this a great how-to tutorial as well as an excellent desktop reference.

A must have for any IT or security professional

If you are responsible for IT resources you must have this book. If you are a security professional you must have this book.

This book will illustrate how Google can used by the bad guys to profile and enumerate your network infrastructure. Johnny Long does an excellent job explaining how Google works with advanced operators and how fiddling with syntax can yield interesting results.

He shows how a hacker can learn a ton of information about your network and company without ever sending a packet at your network.

You will learn how to find out information about misconfigured servers, "interesting" files left laying around servers, locating exploits, mapping networks and quite a bit more. But, you will learn how to defend and protect yourself against the evil Google hacker.

You will learn how to Google hack yourself as part of your penetration testing.
This is an easy read. You don't have to know about the OSI model or ACL rulesets. It should be on the bookshelf of every IT professional, and should be referred to often.

Hats off to Johnny Long for writing such an incredibly valuable resource.
