Review of Security Sage's Guide to Hardening the Network Infrastructure Posted

Amazon.com just posted my three star review of Security Sage's Guide to Hardening the Network Infrastructure. From the review:

"This is a tough review to write, since I worked with the lead authors and series editor at Foundstone, and I'm mentioned by name on p. 384. "Security Sage's Guide to Hardening the Network Infrastructure" (HTNI) is mainly a collection of advice given in other security books, packaged with brochure-like commercial product descriptions. Much of the technical defensive recommendations lack the command-level syntax to put that advice into practical use. I was excited by the table of contents, but disappointed once I finished the book. I can't recommend HTNI unless your library doesn't already address essential networking and security techniques."
