Building on this, the next few chapters focus on detailing ways to customize your Bash shell using functionalities such as tab completion and rich text formatting. After the fundamental customization techniques and general purpose tools have been discussed, the book breaks into topics such as the command-line-based security tools in the Kali Linux operating system.

    The author has really organised a fundamental set of tools for penetration testers to achieve the required results on their analysis. He has effectively structured a five chapter book which defines a road map to newcomers in the field to understand the bash shell adding a useful birdview to kali linux users. Highly recommended to extend your knowledge.
