Indepth info. and written in understandable English
on May 22, 2001
First, realize that this is Volume 2, Volume 1 is also essential and about $30 more. This book is written in everyday English, which makes it infinitely more understandable than the texts written for high-level techs. A degree of knowledge about information security and computer technology would be useful before starting in on this book as it is indepth and covers a lot of ground. This is a book you will want to keep close for reference and studying for the CISSP.
I've seen Tipton speak on several occasions and he's definitely a leader in the industry. Any books he authors or edits are probably worth having if you're serious about working in or understanding the information security industry.
