This assignment tries to put you in the right frame of mind for the penetration exercise portions of the homework.

Please select any non-computer science book that takes a point of view and twists it unexpectedly. The twist may be an invalidation of an assumption, exploiting a weakness in a system, or just an unusual view of a situation that reveals something previously unknown, or that shows the situation is not as it seems. Then, write at most 1 page about the twist and how it relates to the assumptions that characters in the book (or targets of the twist) make, as well as how the twist illustrates the placement of trust.
