About one month before the end of each quarter I'll post a poll with a list of books to vote on. At the end of the quarter the votes will be tallied & the next book posted along with a review & discussion of the current book. Recommendations for books can be made via email, twitter, comments or carrier pigeon. While reading the book use the hashtag #WiFiBookClub to discuss on twitter. In the interest of getting this off the ground quickly, I decided to fast forward the process & skip the voting for the first book.
Without further ado I present the first book up for review, Hacking Wireless Exposed, Third Edition.
