Review of Cyber Attacks Posted just posted my three star review of Cyber Attacks by Edward Amoroso. From the review:

Writing a book isn't easy, especially when you're trying to develop a framework and solutions that apply to a topic as vast as protecting national infrastructure. I applaud Dr Amoroso's efforts in Cyber Attacks, but I fear he is solving yesterday's problems with yesterday's answers. This book might have been more relevant in 2006 when one could have plausibly pointed to botnets as "clearly the most important security issue on the Internet today" as Dr Amoroso oddly says on p 12. Unfortunately for readers, Cyber Attacks does not have the perspective needed to provide workable solutions to modern problems.
