The Hacker Playbook 3

A famous hacking book from Peter Kim

Awesome book with hacking tools and tips from Peter Kim. You can find THP3 book at amazon with "look inside" feature. This is the 3rd edition focused on Red Teaming. If you are a beginner, it's better to choose 2nd edition, it's more suitable for learning. What I don't like about this book is a typography. Here is a list of tools and notes (in progress).
