Surviving Cyber War 5 Nov 2010
By Mikel Gore - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a well written book with a lot of valuable information. It is an eye opening experience for the reader. Richard Stiennon put together a very well rounded account of the current state and potential future of Cyber Warfare. I recommend you read it for the well grounded information it gives, on the often confusing and exaggerated subject of Cyber War.

Great book, great information!! 14 Jan 2011
By Chewy's Dad... - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book is full of great information and insight for the novice security expert all the way up to and including the most advanced security expert. Its a great read then most of the books written about this topic. Kindle viewers may find it a bit difficult to read some of the text, but that should NOT deter you from the material being presented. The information being presented flows evenly and succinctly from chapter to chapter. I liked this book very much and found the material to be extremely helpful and educational.

Great Reading - Important Reading 4 Mar 2011
By Wes - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book was a little different than I expected. It provides a higher layer view of what's happening without going into fine technical detail. Many Americans feel that being security conscious is just being paranoid. This book dispels that myth and does a great job of explaining the types of Cyber Attacks that have occurred around the world. It's an eye opener. Because of this, it is very interesting reading and has the excitement of a novel.

Then the author does a great job of explaining how to protect yourself, your company, and your country from these ever present attacks.
Everyone thinks it won't happen to them - until it does.

Not for Kindle 13 Nov 2010
By Roger1 - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Portions of this book have entire pages reproduced as images, rather than text, making them too small to read on a Kindle2, even with a magnifying glass. Do not waste your money!

Eye Opener! 25 Jun 2010
By T. M. Urquhart Jr. - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
After reading this book, it makes me realize that America has a long way to go in order to protect itself from malicious attacks, whether foreign or domestic. We CAN do it! America is THE No.1 nation in the world! It just takes commitment, time, brains, and money. The USA has all these.
