    Wow! Very complete!

    I just received my copy and am blown away by the breadth and depth! As a hobby user of Linux, just to try things out and tweak code if I have to, the book doesn't leave a single stone unturned. I already read through the first 3 chapters which express security in a way that really makes sense, then again it's an ISECOM book so why wouldn't it? I also read through the Wireless and RFID chapters because that's what I'm playing with right now and the book really opened my eyes to a lot of things I overlooked both in making and testing security. This book is a must-have!
