Focusing on the human factors involved with information security, Mitnick explains why all the firewalls and encryption protocols in the world will never be enough to stop a savvy grifter intent on rifling a corporate database or an irate employee determined to crash a system.

With the help of many fascinating true stories of successful attacks on business and government, he illustrates just how susceptible even mktnick most locked-down information systems are to a slick con artist impersonating an IRS agent. Narrating from the points of view of both the attacker and the victims, he explains why each attack was so successful and how it supercyerie have been prevented in an engaging and highly readable style reminiscent of a true-crime novel.

And, perhaps most importantly, Mitnick offers advice for preventing these types of social engineering hacks through security protocols, training programs, and manuals that address the human mignick of security. Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not? This is the first book I have ever stopped listening to before finishing.

The Art of Deception Livre audio | Kevin Mitnick |

The narrator was just soooo boring – it was like he was reading a text book. Would you be willing to try another book from Kevin Mitnick? I did read his other book Ghost in the Wires and it was fantastic – in fact that’s the reason I decided to buy this book. How did the narrator detract from the book?

He was very, very monotone and boring. No excitement or inflection in his voice at points where there clearly should have been. Did The Art of Deception inspire you to do anything?

See, that’s what the app is perfect for.

Yes – listen to a different book – any other book. It’s too bad they didn’t use the same narrator from Ghost supercheriw the Wires – that narrator really had Mitnick down pat. This book is a fun read listen with story after story mostly about how people get tricked into giving up passwords or dial up modem numbers.


Some of the tricks would still work, but most would not in modern enterprises. This book does supercjerie come close to fully describing a modern threat landscape.

Hacker’s Box : L’Art de la supercherie / Hacker’s Guide by Kevin D. Mitnick

I work in InfoSec, and found this to be an excellent history lesson, with a few instances and situations where the human element of security threats still exist, such as the types of scams run arh gain physical access. It really opened my eyes to the power of social engineering and made me see that I was not only prone to being a victim, but a perpertrator of such activity.

Recommended reading for anyone in an IS role or looking to gain insight into how the other half use their social skills to get around hardened security measures, highly engineered processes and even armed guards. You can read the entire book here: Two decades ago you could call people at work, claim to be someone else, ask for their help, and with a little piece of information trick someone else to get their secrets.

Everything is about the phone and “hacking” phone lines, with no technical explanations. Oh, and there is some good advice on not downloading unusual email attachments. Once you hear the first two hours, you’ve heard it all.

I returned it after 6 hours.

Is there anything you would change about this book? No, it’s xe text book than a story and I was hoping for a bit more charm. I had hoped that this book would be just as enjoyable but that wasn’t the case. It’s not without its merits thought and some people may find the straightforward nature more helpful.

Fine, more straightforward, if you’re in security it’s definitely worth reading otherwise I’d read Ghost In The Wires since they’re basically the same book. I found the narrator a bit condescending. If you are interested in Kevin Mitnick’s story and want the entertaining version, read “Ghost in the Wires”. This book is good, but more specific to the needs of a company trying to prevent the types of attacks Kevin did back in arh day.

I read this second and don’t have a role in the company’s security, so this book was a let down.


Not because it isn’t a good book, just not what I needed. Great book as a manual for security! Mitnik did a solid job of laying out how scoundrels can work their way into your IT systems for malevolent purposes. Amazingly, most of the techniques involve cracking the “people” rather than cracking the “code. Material is aged and needs updating. Overall concept is good, gets the point across, but the age of the stories takes away from the overall value. What would have made The Art of Deception better?

This material is dated and the narrator doesn’t pronounce many of the terms correctly. DEC is simply stated as deck. You don’t spell out the characters.

There were other words that were not pronounced correctly. What do you think your next listen will be? Save your credit or money for Kevin Mittnick’s other book, Ghost in the Wires.

A much better book and highly recommended. Another great book on cybersecurity by Kelvin Mitnick. Worth the listen or read and will be listening to it again. Gratuit avec l’offre d’essai.
