5.0 out of 5 stars Very Good Book Sept. 7 2005
By computerprofessor - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I am using this book for an introduction to computer security course I teach. It has the breadth of topics I need (fundamentals of viruses, trojan horses, denial of service, firewalls, IDS, anti spyware, etc.). It even has some material few introductory books cover (cryptography, identity theft).

It has excellent exercises and review questions. I can unequivocally recomend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding book for beginners July 31 2005
By billpage - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I teach computer science at a small regional college. I had to review over a dozen different books for our introduction to computer security course. This book is hands down the very best for a beginner. It gives a broad introduction to all aspects of computer security (including some areas other books ignore completely). It also is replete with references, places to look for more information, and practical exercises.

This is the best book for a beginner.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good writing, bad printing May 23 2009
By mrobinson52 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I like the way this book is written, and I like the fact that the chapters are short, since many of my professors seem to like to pile on a lot of reading. The writing style is easy to read, but sadly the book is somewhat outdated, which happens rapidly in this field.

What bothers me greatly is how badly printed this book is. The screenshots are faded out and a bit blurry because it looks like they copied the book rather than printed it. The chapter numbers on the right edge of the pages are partially cut off when you get to chapters with two digits, which happens when you make a copy of a copy. The grays are faded and the book looks like they were running out of toner when they used a laser printer. At this price, the book should be printed using a normal printing process, not some cheap copying method.

3.0 out of 5 stars Content is good, but book looks photocopied Dec 8 2011
By NothingNess - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The content in the book is good, just seems I was sold an bootleg or a photocopy of the actual book. The cover is more orange and faded, the inside pages are not in color at all, and all the pics look straight up photocopied. I really think its a bootleg book !

4.0 out of 5 stars Dated, but still going strong April 21 2011
By L. Anderson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
While the copyright is 2006 (although I understand it's being updated and re-released), this is an excellent entry-level text for individuals and students. It does a good job of covering the fundamentals of computer and network security. The topics covered are still mostly current (fundamentals remember) - and if the instructor can't bring some of the topics up to date, they should not be teaching the class in the first place. Instructor support, slides, labs, etc. is pretty good. Wish there was an ebook version. Certainly one of the better books on the topic.
