Title: Security Engineering: A Guide to Building Dependable Distributed Systems
Publisher: Wiley

Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
Five stars not enough

Five stars for Ross Anderson's Security Engineering are just not enough - you have to read the book to understand what I mean. I won't repeat what other reviewers here on amazon.com have said; instead I'd say that the author is THE security expert. His amazingly broad and in-depth security expertise and good writing style resulted in a book which is not only comprehensive and detailed, but also interesting to read. You can be an expert in one, two, well, three (out of 10) domains of information security, but it seems the author is equally at home when writing about all 10 domains. I wish I was his student!

Could be better

I've found three questions in the first exam alone where the answers must be inaccurate - in one case the comment explaining the answer is clearly refering to another question, or an earlier version of the question.

In general the comments explaining the answers are very short and not very rich in content, so not so useful as a study tool.

The user interface to the on line tests sometimes requires scolling to read the full text of a question, very distracting. And it does not let you take tests by knowledge areas.

A well written into to an obsolete computer

This is an entertaining book that will help people learn to use their Mac. Unfortunately the author exhibits the kind of irrational, foaming at the mouth delusions that plagues so many Apple fanatics. I have to use both Macs and Win95/98/NT systems daily and frankly the Mac is JUNK.
