Read this book

Social engineering is the art of manipulating people into performing actions or divulging confidential information. While similar to a confidence trick or simple fraud, the term typically applies to trickery for information gathering or computer system access and in most cases the attacker never comes face-to-face with the victim.

Dale Carnegie's "How To Win Friends And Influence People".

Let me tell you, this book has opened up so many doors for me both in the business world and in my personal life. Buy it and read it at least once every five months.

I also recommend "Social Engineering" by Christopher Hadnagy. It is full of great info.

^ I actually just recently downloaded the the PDF. Along with Hacking the Human by Ian Mann. Both of which were legally downloaded, of course.

The best PDFs are the legal PDFs.

I bought the audiobook recently. I'll listen to it when I have time.

Another good book I read was "Kingpin : how one hacker took over the billion-dollar cybercrime underground" by Kevin Poulsen. It is really good non-fiction.
