For years, security sage Bruce Schneier has been warning us about the true security risks in our wired-up world, and revealing the illusions we construct to convince ourselves - wrongly - that we are safe.
He unmasked the smoke and mirrors behind airport security checks that make us feel safer without actually making us safer...why the FBI's wiretapping plan is in fact a boon to the bad the trust essential to a functioning society has been replaced with security measures that merely alter the level of risk.
Now, in the aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombing and chemical attacks in Syria, Schneier presents this anthology of more than 155 of his most insightful essays. Here you will find thought-provoking assessments of security and technology; the psychological, human, business, and economic aspects of security; privacy and surveillance; crime, terrorism, spying, and war; liberty and law; and much, much more.

* Why our computer security is a feudal system
* How science fiction writers can affect homeland security

* Google's and Facebook's privacy illusion
* Why the FBI and CIA failed to connect the dots on the Boston Marathon bombers

2.0 von 5 Sternen Good raw material, assembled by a robot. Not worthy of the name 22. März 2014
Von John & Dawn Moehrke - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I like Bruce Schneier, so figured this book would be good. But it is just Okay. This book is very much a manufactured book made 99.5% out of his blog or magazine articles. It is only minimally organized. If you keep up with his writings, then this book is of no value, except as a reference. If you don't keep up with Bruce's writing then it is a worthy read.

Although I didn't think the book was good. I am still glad I bought it. Simply for the value my purchase does to the visibility of Bruce's writing and if some money gets back to him, all the better. So I put this in the camp of donations I send to open-source projects that I utilize. That would be a nice function for Amazon to add, a way to donate to open-source projects through amazon.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Format is disjointed, lacks depth 10. März 2014
Von Ryan Mitchell - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
For anyone who has followed Bruce Scheneier's blog, read his articles, and works in security (or is an enthusiastic amateur), this book will be somewhat of a disappointment. Although it's no secret that this book is a compilation of old articles and blog posts, the format makes it almost impossible to sit down and read for long stretches of time. The constant repetition of lines, ideas, and scenarios (remember, these were never originally meant to be published together) gives the reader a distracting sense of deja vu that makes it difficult to read the book straight through.
In addition, the short format of each segment means that it's impossible to get into any real depth about a particular subject. While this might be fine for a non-technical reader, I doubt that anyone who is specifically purchasing Bruce Schneier's new book is going to be "non-technical."
However, the content is good. This should be obvious. I mean, it's Bruce Schneier for crying out loud. It's going to have good content. It's worth purchasing to peruse on the bus, be able to look up an interesting article or two when the mood strikes you. It just shouldn't be thought of as a "book" book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Five Star Rating for a Five Star Kind of Guy 19. Januar 2014
Von Allochthon - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
When members of Congress seek to understand the depth and breadth of the state of national security, its programs, and the information brought to public light by whistleblowers, they turn to Bruce Schneier.

For regular readers of his "Schneier on Security" blog, supporters and advocates of electronic privacy, as well as those recently seeking a port during the current national security $#!+-storm, this is the man to turn to for calm, sound, well-reasoned thoughts and advice on cybersecurity, safety, and electronic privacy contrasted against a digital world bent on data collection, mining, and exploitation.

Take a trip through Bruce Schneier's essays ([relatively] recent and past) to find clear, rational thought and counsel about the ever-evolving threats in today's rapidly changing technological landscape.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Very good read - lots of insight 10. Februar 2014
Von Roy Fine - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
Most of the content is available on Schneier's website - I bought the hard copy to read then have handy on the bookshelf (like Brooks' Mythical Man Month only a lot fresher and significantly more timely).

Some of the notes are a bit dated, but Schneier hits the mark on every one. You may not agree with him on every point, but where you don't he elicits a thought process that in itself is valuable

Entertaining read with some nuggets sprinkled throughout

5.0 von 5 Sternen Such a magnitude of information 3. Februar 2014
Von LarsAnna - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
Bruce Schneier has done it again - written a book that is so interesting to read, I found it hard to put down.
His style of writing presents a depth of information when needed, and ease of read at other times. It's packed with various security scenarios etc, and is highly entertaining.
