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.
