"Steal This Book 2" describes the different ways in which interested people might find, crack and steal software from the Internet. When I first received this book for review, I was instantly taken aback at the mere fact that someone and even a publisher would publish this book at all."

"For many hackers, buying a state of the art computer is not an option. In part 3 and 4 of this book offer a variety of ways in which one may obtain good used equipment through various channel. Computer makers offer discontinued or refurbished products, for example."

"All in all, I found this to be a fairly good and informative book on the process of hacking, virus writing, its symptoms and how can users protect themselves and their data against - not only viruses - but also a more malignant type of viruses called Troyan Horses."
