As a information security professional, I was curious what advice the author was giving and if the book would perhaps be useful for pointing my customers to. Unfortunately, I found that that was not the case. The book is 39 pages long, on my nook. The first few chapters spend time creating a risk index that, while potentially useful, is far from novel. The advice provided on the established risk levels is highly repetitive, further padding the book. The advise for Severe/High covers everything, then moderate and low are copy/pastes of it with points removed as your risk goes down. After working through all of that, you find that it was all really an advertisement for a smart phone app named Saya that is coming out.... The remainder of the book is a collection of news articles and heavy quoting from presentations. Overall, I didn't find the book useful for myself or for referring others to.
