Throw a bootable kali linux on a flash drive and watch a few youtube tutorials on it, there're all kinds of pre-scripted stuff that can be run, the basics are a breeze. It's tough to master, but scary-easy to get started on.
Let me check my bookshelf tomorrow (or today, it's very late here and i should be asleep). I have a lot of books on those kinds of topics, i'll just have to search for the english ones that are worth their money.
If i dont reply just remind me again, because tomorrow/today will be a busy day.
I did check and if you exclude the german books you're left with "hacking - the art of exploitation" (i really recommend it, it's old but it perfectly covers exploits at c-level), books from and with kevin mitnick (those don't cover computer hacking but they're totally worth the read) and the "hacking exposed"-series (you need preexisting knowledge for those books, e.g. you need to know html, js and http before you get into their web-hacking book).
For web resources i recommend owasp for a list of vulnerabilities still found in the wild and the security-stackexchange for answers to recent topics.
