Currently The Book only has about 100,000 or so competitors ahead of it on Amazon. Now, a real security book doesn’t aim for number 1. Instead, it shoots for a more appropriate number like 1,337 or, with luck, number 42.
Reaching a magic number like that pales in comparison to a real ratings hack described in Chapter 6: Logic Attacks.
