...Yes, I know I left out some information
And possibly invented some?

Based on the pros and cons you posted, this looks like the review you are looking at. This review of a book called "Hacking - The Art of Exploitation" is a word for word match with your quote.

First of all, it is not an O'Reilly book, it is published by NoStarch Press. Second, I don't think we should condemn O'Reilly for offering this book for sale. I searched their website for both the book and the author, and yes they are selling it - but your local bookstore might just carry it, or maybe something more malicious.

Anyway, this book isn't related to their "Hacking" series - which isn't about breaking into computers and networks, it's about taking something to its limits - Google Hacking means using Google to the fullest extent, for example.

I can't speak for the post-copyright accusation, but based on the facts above I think this rant needs to be retracted.
