Publisher's Summary

In Cybersecurity and Cyberwar: What Everyone Needs to Know®, New York Times best-selling author P. W. Singer and noted cyberexpert Allan Friedman team up to provide the kind of deeply informative resource book that has been missing on a crucial issue of 21st-century life. Written in a lively, accessible style, filled with engaging stories and illustrative anecdotes, the book is structured around the key question areas of cyberspace and its security: how it all works, why it all matters, and what we can do.
Along the way, they take listeners on a tour of the important (and entertaining) issues and characters of cybersecurity, from the Anonymous hacker group and the Stuxnet computer virus to the new cyberunits of the Chinese and US militaries. Cybersecurity and Cyberwar: What Everyone Needs to Know® is the definitive account of the subject for us all, which comes not a moment too soon.

Let's hope there is not a sequel

This is my least enjoyable book from audible even including those I returned. The author seems lost interest in the subject early in the book feeling the pages with poorly connecting data to the main theme and he uses metaphors that are disjointed bringing added confusion rather than clarity.
By the time the end of the book the pages run on with filler as if to make a page quota. Add to this is a narrator whose sing song delivery is more fitting narrating a book on the joy of kite flying than what is supposed to be a serious subject.
This book is not the concise and crisp covering of the subject matter I hoped it would be.
