If you've read Permission Marketing and Idea Virus then this is a great follow-up book. I read it in one sitting. Get this book fast.... before your competition does!

Great Introduction to Cryptography

Clearly a monumental work. Easy reading style, thorough treatment of protocols and ciphers of all styles and purposes...if you read this and don't pick up something useful then I want to hire you!
Copious and meticulous references. Consistent style throughout is a big plus. Dry wit (Alice and Bob find a book on Artificial Inteligence lying discarded and unused on the road...)makes for fun reading.
The only thing I would wish for is a clearer delineation between protocols and ciphers in the public domain vs. patented.

Title: The Windows 2000 Device Driver Book: A Guide for Programmers (2nd Edition)

Excelent book

I have read all, but one of the Windows 2000/NT device driver books and found this one to be the best for beginners, by far. It is very well organized in a top-down approach. I though the concepts were well presented and easy to understand. After readin two other books on NT device drivers, this one finally explained things clearly for me.
The book is also very hands-on. It describes an example device drive in full source and develops it through each chapter. You can actually build the driver as you go and the driver is developed as you would develop your own driver.
This book is also not wordy and quick-reading. I would suggest is, if you are trying to grasp NT device drivers.

Rating: 3/5
Customer opinion - 3 stars out of 5

For the security-minded professional, this book is a MUST HAVE... any security collection is simply not complete without this easy-to-use, well-written reference. Though typically not enough information for script-kiddies and the like, it's enough for the security engineer type to quickly and easily identify problems and come up with ways to fix them in their environments.
