The way in which the Linux Security Cookbook approaches its subject is ideal. When presented with the problem of securing system(s) in an ever more hostile environment there are a lot of "How do I..." questions asked. The vast majority of the texts available on Security do not take this approach. This book can be dipped into and answers obtained in quick time. You do not need to do vast amounts of reading to get at the answers neither do you need a lot of background knowledge to sensibly implement most of the tasks described.
If you need an in depth analysis of security principles then look elsewhere. The Linux Security Cookbook delivers exactly what it promises, The Answers.

This is a great place to start on securing your system - quick answers without having to read tens of pages of text to just achieve a basic setting.

Bear in mind this is a cookbook - if you're looking to learn everything there is to know about a topic like iptables then maybe this isn't for you - personally I used it as a starting point and then read more on the topic that interested me somewhere else.

Good answers quickly achieved and whets your appetite for more!
