If you are curious about learning hacking and want to have some good books, this collection will surely help you. First of all, i want to say few words about Indian readers. Never run after self claimed hackers who always fail to show proof of what they have done. In India, hacking workshop is now a big business. Persons who come as trainer show themselves as big hackers but only few of them have real knowledge. I also know few trainers who arrange this kind of workshops and have great command over what they teaching. But most of the Indian self claimed hackers are fake. They publish hacking books by copying other writers content without giving them credits. There are many big names who have done like this. I am just warning to all of you that hacking books written by those writers are only copy paste material and do not have clear idea about what they are writing.
If you want to read some original and real material to know what is hacking, these are some best hacking books. You can also download these books by some tools which allow users to download books from Google Books.
