I prefer reading then viewing a video. If there are any books I can read about penetration testing, ethical hacking I would be glad to take any recommendations. I have bought a course on networking and working on that. Also I have a laptop running Kali. I just wish to read something about hacking. I was thinking about, Hacking The Art of Exploitation, but I feel like it would be out of date.
The books, Art of Intrusion and the Art of Deception by Kevin Mitnick are good books to read. While not specifically about penetration testing computers they offer insight to "penetration testing" of people, which will help you understand the thought process you will need while doing pentests. Most successful areas of pentesting are the people (i.e. getting them to plug in a USB drive with your payload on it, getting them to click an infected link, allowing them to give you access to their computer, etc.)
Loved NoStrach ever since they published the TCP/IP guide.
Another book to consider might be the 'CEH v9: Certified Ethical Hacker Version 9 Study Guide 3rd Edition' its been around a bit and 'Gray Hat Hacking - Forth Edition'.
