Hacking: The Art of Exploitation

Spends too much time on one topic then runs out of time to get truly creative. However it’s still worth a read if you are interested in creating exploits, particularly for Linux.

Not a life changing masterpiece but a good insight into the ‘hacker’ mindset, without skimping on the technical information.
