    A New Age of Security

    This is one of the two books i think really formed my view if Information Security. Between 'Secrets and Lies', and 'Inside the Security Mind', I think we are ushering in a new age of Infosec books.

    A MUST READ

    This book looks to be extremly delightful, I think it would be a great book for anyone that has any doubt about their security in this digital world we call the internet, people just wanting to learn about security, or even just home users that would like to know how computer security works. GO BUY IT NOW!

    A must read for those who shop online

    Read at the beach but bring it back to the office

    Mr. Schneier has made an invaluable contribution to the new economy. He has written a very readable book that explains, in very plain English, the internet and network security issues with which everyone who has ever read or sent an email should be familiar. The book flows smoothly enough for you to read it at the beach, yet it contains so much critical information that after finishing it, you should bring it back to your office. The most compelling parts of the book point out the similarities and differences between security issues in the bricks and mortar world and the digital world.

    Secrets, Lies, and Schneier, oh my

    _Secrets and Lies_ is a necessary book for everyone who wonders about privacy and security on the Internet--that is to say, everyone. Schneier discusses the threats in cyberspace, the technologies to combat them, and (most importantly) the strategies that make those technologies work. It's not surprising that the technical information is solid. What might be surprising to some, though, is how lucid and funny Schneier's writing is. He doesn't talk down to readers, but you don't have to be a complete techie to understand what he's saying. Schneier's discussion of where things are and where they're going is fascinating and informative. I was especially interested by the legal stuff--many of the laws designed to enhance security and privacy actually damage it. Read this book, make your boss read it, make your IT manager read it, and send a copy to your congresscritter. It might just help make the Net safer.

    This should be required reading.

    I got about 40 pages into it over dinner and decided it was ready for the mandatory reading list here. If only it was required reading for everyone who does business online...

    Very Compelling Reading

    I have just finished reading Schneier's most recent book - what an excellent piece of writing. I read it cover to cover and enjoyed almost every page. A very different approach than you took with Applied Cryptography which I also enjoyed.
