Social Engineering: The art of the human hacking
A poor read. The author spends too much time admiring himself and repeating, repeating, repeating how important his social engineering concepts are but never delivers with stories/examples. The few examples of the cons are not clever and use very outdated techniques. Do not recommend.
Despite the almost over the top robotic and computer generated voice of the narrator, it was an enjoyable read/listen.
