Praise for The Hacker Mindset

Hackers see things differently. They know how to beat the systems. So, applying their methods to life makes absolute sense. The author has been hacking for years and now applies this experience to hacking business, work, and life in general. He’s also got a lot to share about his own life, which made the book even better. Loved it. Fully recommended.

Very high-quality lessons and I think you can apply all hacker mindset methodologies to the aspects of life that you prefer. Want to land your dream job? Read this book. Want to take your business to the next level? Read this book. Want to succeed and retire early? Definitely read this book.

The book is written BY a hacker FOR hackers, but not just those on computers. I felt that it was for people like me, who want to reverse engineer things and exploit systems to learn how they work (I’m in the finance industry). In other words, for those who think out of the box and are in a continuous process of learning.

He does well to adapt the complicated and technical language of the programming world in layman’s terms. Very enjoyable, very refreshing. A must-read.

No matter how free we think we are, the author says, we are stuck in systems. But if we identify them and how they work, down to their most subtle weaknesses, we can escape them. The Hacker Mindset helps you take a novel approach on developing as a person in the modern world. It uses hacking – actual hacking, since the writer performs ethical hacking for a living! – to unravel the greatest challenges of our lives.
