Presenting invaluable advice from the world's most famous computer security expert, this intensely readable collection features some of the most insightful and informative coverage of the strengths and weaknesses of computer security and the price people pay - figuratively and literally - when security fails. Discussing the issues surrounding things such as airplanes, passports, voting machines, ID cards, cameras, passwords, Internet banking, sporting events, computers, and castles, this book is a must-read for anyone who values security at any level - business, technical, or personal.

More terrorism than anything else.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Falsely advertised as about computer security. 90% of book is about national terrorism, response to 9/11.

Would you ever listen to anything by Bruce Schneier and Ken Maxon again?

Yes

Any additional comments?

I am this close to asking for money back. Book is a collection of old essays, pre-NSA and Snowden, and almost entirely on policy level of safety against terrorism.

Good general information but a bit dated

Some concepts are still valid but for the most part many things have change and this book is a bit dated. I will explore the new book from Bruce. The narration is great.
