This book is required reading for at least one of my information security management courses at my college. I haven't even read half of it, but I can say, with confidence, that it's already proven more useful than anything I learned in my five years of doing university-level computer science. The only thing it does not do is teach you how to hack a computer, at least not in the sense of what being a hacker means. It would definitely help you on your way of becoming a script kiddie, though!
