Book Reveiw

I don't know why I picked up Inside Cyber Warfare at the library. Maybe because it had an awesome cover. I'm not really interested in the subject area, yet this book was really interesting. The author covers the nature of modern cyber warfare in as non-technical of a manner as possible, instead focusing on the social and political aspects. The book isn't at all a survey text. I actually found myself a bit bored by how it covered, in detail, the international political dialog surrounding the issue, but if you are willing to skip over parts, it's not bad. If I were into security, I'd probably love this.
