The Art Of Exploitation

After reading Counter Hack Reloaded, I got very interested in Buffer Overflows. I just got recommended this book. Any good feedback on this one?

Excuse me: It's called Hacking-The Art Of Exploitation.

Re: The Art Of Exploitation

I just got this a few days ago. I haven't had a chance to get into it, but it looks really good from glancing through it so far. I also got the Shellcoder's Handbook. Between the two of them, I should be busy for a bit :)

Re: The Art Of Exploitation

I'm actually working on a review of it now.  This is a great book for getting the bases down for understanding how exploits work and how to write them.  This is sort of the primer for understanding many of the most common exploits out there today.  It is heavily unix centric, but in my opinion that makes it easier to understand.  I didn't find the examples horribly useful though, and I actually tested what I learned over at http://www.smashthestack.org/ and referenced back at this book at shellcoders handbook on a regular basis as I went through the excercises.
