    If you have ever enjoyed taking something apart to see how it works, this book will thrill you. Tradecraft aside, the inner workings of these otherwise inaccessible devices are a wonderful study of mechanical engineering.

    Having purchased similar books with varying degrees of satisfaction I easily rate this the highest. The text and pictures are independently useful and very complimentary. Its hard to call a book on lockpicking a must-read, but this should be a foundation for any learning of the subject.

    I bought this book to learn physical security (locks) and discovered that this book is “THE” definitive guide to lockpicking. I just started picking locks when I got this book and after 1 day of reading and understanding the first 2 chapters and doing the exercise, I was able to successfully pick my first lock (addicting for anyone that doesn’t like to give up). Also, tons of illustrations that will help you understand how a lock works.

    I highly recommend this book if you want to start learning about the “challenging” world of lockpicking!

    This is a great guide book to lock picking. I knew almost nothing about the subject before getting this book and after reading the first few chapters I was able to pick basic locks! The pictures and discriptions are great and very informative. I’d recommend it for anyone interested in the subject.
