Daunting, but so is life

For those reviewers complaining about the complexity of this book, you should bear in mind that this is aimed at people with some Perl experience and does in fact provide extremely useful information.

It is not intended to be read from cover to cover, rather it servers as an encylopedia or verbose dictionary of Perl. The occasional funny bits break up what is otherwise a fairly dry book.

If you want examples etc then get Learning Perl or the Perl Cookbook from the same publisher. In fact if you are serious about Perl you should have all three books.

Good for All

This book is probably the best book on security I have read in a long time. It reaches not only to the computer literate, but to the illiterate as well giveing good, solid examples of real life. It probably will, and should, scare the reader a fair amount. Maybe if mroe people read this book, they would understand their individual security responsibilites a little better.

Just a great book

This is just a great book! It explains nuts and bolts of windows 2003 in addition to lots of tricks and tips. This is one book I think is worth every penny that I paid and then some.

Great book

The material is very hard, but the book is written in a way that makes it as easy to read as possible. There is TONS of information here. I usually like to highlight the important stuff when I read, but in this book, nearly everything is important and worth highlighting. In other words, there is no B.S.; they get right down to the point.
