"The Ghidra Book provides a thorough introduction for new
users, using clear examples with plenty of background information .
. . a valuable addition to the skill set of a malware analyst."
"The book takes you from the beginning of your Ghidra journey to the end. From an introduction to disassembly and working with the basics of Ghidra to scripting in Ghidra to extend its capabilities, this book covers it all. . . . a perfect 5/5 for me."
-Tyler Reguly, Tripwire Book Club
"I would highly recommend this book. Rather than simply being a Ghidra user guide, the authors did an exceptional job of laying out many of the fundamental concepts involved in software reverse engineering."
-Craig Young, Principal Security Researcher, Tripwire
"I enjoyed The Ghidra Book, and it was a good starting point for me in entering the world of reverse engineering and the many different tools that are accessible due to being open-sourced. I encourage anyone that has an interest in reverse engineering or who just wants to investigate cool open-sourced tools to give The Ghidra Book a read."
-Matthew Jerzewski, Security Researcher, Tripwire
