HASH(0x9db0d744) out of 5 stars Not very good April 17 2014
By Digital Goddess - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book isn't aimed at security professionals. It's aimed at end users. I read this because I was thinking of recommending it to my mother. I will not be doing so. The idea was good but the execution is sadly lacking. I found it to be contradictory in its advice. It uses a lot of industry jargon which is confusing to those who are not well-versed in digital security concepts. It over-simplifies other things to the point of being useless, possibly even detrimental.

Unfortunately, this field moves fast enough that by the time a book is published, it is already obsolete. The versions of Joomla, Plone and WordPress he covers in this book are now dangerous to run and much of the advice he offers is now obsolete, as well.
