    Comments about oreilly Instant Kali Linux:

    I use Kali a lot and was hoping to find a good work here that had pointers ranging from starters to tuners. I didn't. Basically a rehash of online "get started docs". In fact in some case less so than what is on line because some of it was dated. Was so hopeful that there was some good stuff here, but not so much!
