A large portion of the content was padded with screenshots and step-by-step instructions on how to get the tools up and running. Most of the first half of the book covers pretty standard fare on what penetration testers do regardless of their focus, like recon, social engineering, and cracking passwords. Nothing I'd call Web-specific attacks. And at the end, an unexpectedly out of place diversion to file system forensics eats up a chapter as well. Doesn't do anything to help you with Web-based attacks, and is far too brief and summarized to help you with forensics.
I learned far more about the guts of Web application penetration testing; what the attack vectors are, how they work, what they look like, and which tools to use, from the OWASP Testing Guide.
This book respects a real pentest methodology used by pentesters.
Everything is clearly explained, step by step.
This book is my new arm for my next pentests :-)
