"Gray Hat Python: Python Programming for Hackers and Reverse Engineers" By Justin Seitz, 1st Edition.
Gray Hat Python for Windows
In my career, Python was the first programming language that I have learned. I then learned programming in Java and C++. I looked back to Python for it’s simplicity and versatility. That is why I decided to pick up this book to learn what Python can do in hacking and reverse engineering since that is something I am interested in.
The author’s writing style is clear, direct, and mature. The format of the book is clean and well structured which makes it easier to maneuver. The problem I had with the book was that the code in the book is unreliable. The code in the book and the code in the website do not match. Also, the book is Windows oriented which may be a disappointment for some people.
Overall, there was an abundance of valuable information in the book that grabbed my attention such as fuzzing and the debugging. The book covers a lot of subjects such as debugging, hooking, code injection, and more. The author does a very good job with consolidating the information in the book.
