You can't really read a book like this. You read a few pages and prop the book up with a cookbook holder and start typing in the examples. There were a couple I could not duplicate, but almost everything worked as the authors said it would. Great book, or maybe it would be better to say, great tool! The fun starts with chapter 2 and these folks do not spend a lot of time on reconnaisance. They know how to break web software and we start on that by chapter 3. I was a little sad in chapter 5, they did not really do SQL injection justice, but then they hit it again with stored procedures in chapter 7.
If there is a weakness to the book it might be chapter 9 and 10, the ending, but I still found both chapters informative. Every large organization I know is building web applications and most of them are doing it badly. If you are a coder, a webmaster, or a manager of any of the above, buy a copy of this book for everyone on your team. I am going to do the same for my team right now.

This is a focussed book with a single aim; to help you find and correct common vulnerabilities in web-based applications and website software. Above all, this is a book to be used. The authors take a practical approach to each area of consideration, and the chapters are well structured to make it easy for you to get right to work.
For each area they provide an informative overview followed by discussion of the vulnerabilities including numerous code snippets, examples and screen shots. Though rich in detail the writing style keeps you engaged and the sensible structure when to apply the attack, how to perform it and how to protect against it makes it easy to grasp the key points.
There is no bias towards either Windows or Unix products on either the client or the server, and you won't need to be a scripting expert to put the authors' ideas into practice. Chapter 1 explains the difference between web-based and traditional client-server systems and why a different approach is needed when testing.
Subsequent chapters cover the vulnerabilities: Both the tools and the vulnerabilities in the sample site are fully documented in two useful appendices.
All in all, a rich and well-focussed yet accessible introduction to a wide-ranging subject. If the security of web-based applications is your area, make room for this on your bookshelf.
