Title: Secrets and Lies : Digital Security in a Networked World

Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
Not only informative, but also imaginative!

This book taught me what kind of peepings were performed not only by hackers, but also by governments and companies in a network world. The author is looking at the bigger problems lurking in the reverse side of hacker incidents which covers TV, News and Magazines. We are tend to think hacker as a most dangerous one in the network world, but like everyday life, the most dangerous existence is rich and is organized groups. Who are they?
And this book gave me some business inspiration. In the US, the collected individual information (database) is the property of collectors, not individuals. I'd better to collect database now. Few (no?) Internet-related regislation is available, so everything is OK. In the future, I can get money from that!? I have to follow the way DoubleClick does.

This one got me on the web!

I had bought other HTML books, including some that promised to be simple, but they merely confused me. I felt defeated. Then I saw a copy of this book, read a few pages, and immediately bought it. I have been delighted.
First, it is very readable-clear, logical, and thoughtfully illustrated with useful examples. Second, it is organized in a way that truly helps neophytes. It begins by explaining some general points that page designer needs to know. Then it gets more specific, and then finally it begins explaining the mechanics of creating a page.
The order in which topics are introduced allows the user to put up a simple site and then continue to improve on it. I found that satisfying, because I could get something up and running quickly, which was a thrill, and then I could improve on what I had done.
The web links are very helpful. For instance,the chapter on color provides a link to color charts, so readers can see the colors they will be working with.
This book has made me believe that I will eventually not only design web pages, but also web pages that load quickly, are easy to use, and that can be read on most browsers. I plan on buying another book by this author as soon as I finish this one.
