As a engineer working on Cisco devices all day for an ISP, I thought that it would be good to read this book and see router security from another's perspective. I was not disappointed.
The book is organised in almost a workbook fashion, allowing you to read and apply the ideas as you progress. Each chapter has a summary, which you can use as a checklist before delving deeper and Appendix A is a 'master checklist' of sorts.
Some of the information in the book was completely new to me, even after reading the NSA guides and a few Cisco texts. Whilst I did find that one or two of the recommendations 'broke' something for me, I was easily able to backtrack and find the issues that affected me.
If you are not security-savvy, this book provides a simple clear approach to minimising your exposure to risk. Even if you think you are this book represents good value and is good for the shelf.
A bonus for me was some US centric information about incident reporting and procedures along with some excellent links to general information sites.

If you're maintaining Cisco routers and want to learn some extremely useful tips & tricks then this book is for you, with some great examples and scenarios to learn from.
This book showed be some security holes that you don't learn on your CCNA or Cisco ASA training.
There's some really good ideas which I'd never even considered that I now apply to all Cisco installations as standard!

Worth every penny.....

Lots of good solid tips, this book is worth the money for those after a fast track route to doing what it says on the tin. But could do with an update. After all the book was written in 2002, and the Cisco IOS has moved on quite a bit since then.
