This book fits the bill for me!!. And it is enjoyable
I have a number of other handbook style books - one that cost nearly six times more but was really a collection of articles written by a dozen different people (some with obviously conflicting views) bound under the same cover.
What I liked:
This book simply sets out the things I need to know about Organisations, Strategies and Audits then progresses into firewall design and security testing. And it is so funny - the cover is right this man does make security light going.
What could be better:
The guy is obviously technical so at the end some of it is a bit hard going - just had to skip bits. But each chapter is laid out so that the chapter gets more complex at the end so this wasn't a problem.
I would have liked more on Virus technology and Wireless security - especially as after work on Google, I understand that the fat-bloke was a leading researcher in wireless security
Overall conclusion: Great.
