    Shallow

    A superficial exploration of a deep topic. The authors are more interested in patting each other on the back with inside jokes and personal stories then they are about presenting the reader with useful information. The bulk of any relevant material here -- a how-to guide to hacking and destruction -- has simply been culled and diluted from more informative sources. In the end, the joke's on us. A gross disappointment, especially considering the hefty price.

    Unrivaled -- Definitive Information on Computer Viruses

    The quotes in the front of the book say it all, ¿Viruses Revealed is the most complete compilation of information on computer viruses, worms, trojans, and general malware that I have ever seen.¿ This book covers every aspect of malware, from the history and evolution of computer viruses to defending your system against the impending threat. The authors carefully identify fallacies and misconceptions, which other books miss, and by separating fact from fiction, they provide the reader with a clear understanding of the necessary system solutions. I have purchased several books on computer viruses, and in most cases, they were unreadable and/or inaccurate. This book is both interesting and thoughtful, and it is the only book that I would recommend on computer viruses.
