Review of The Myths of Security Posted

Amazon.com just posted my three star review of The Myths of Security by John Viega. From the review:

Let me start by saying I usually like John Viega's books. I rated Building Secure Software 5 stars back in 2005 and 19 Deadly Sins of Software Security 4 stars in 2006. However, I must not be the target audience for this book, and I can't imagine who really would be. The book mainly addresses consumer concerns and largely avoids the enterprise. However, if most consumers think "antivirus" when they think "security," why would they bother reading The Myths of Security (TMOS)?

Richard, good question why would he write the book? often times when people create products they don't test the market to see if people are actually interested in the product.
