The Art of Attack untangles the threads of a useful, albeit sometimes dangerous, mentality. It shows ethical hackers in Social Engineering and pentesting what an attacker mindset is and how to form one, whilst staying ethical and moral. It includes what the attacker mindset is, a story in which to showcase it, the difference between pen testers and attackers and why this book is needed.

The principles of the attacker mindset are unveiled including persistence, "start with the end," and non-linear thinking. Ethical hackers will learn the strategic tools needed to build their attacker mindset including forming the attack, process, recon, privilege escalation, and possibly most important - redundant access and escape.

The book also speaks to the tells of an attack and how to avoid one for a would-be victim - for individuals and businesses. This section of the book uses the science of psychology to take into account& amygdala hijacking and other tendencies readers need to protect against.
