Entertaining read with some nuggets sprinkled throughout
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.
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.
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.
