You will want this book

I was waiting for this book to come out after reading the table of contents and which authors were writing the chapters. And I was hoping that it would be as good as it sounded it would be. I got what I bargained for. The book covers a broad spectrum of possible intrusion senarios, going over tools and tactics used by hackers and network adminstrators. It gives the security administrator a good view of what is possible. Each chapter covers a different intrusion senario, tools that are used and tactics. Buy this book along with an in depth book such as Hacking Exposed, Special Ops, Hack Proofing your Network, etc. that covers the usage and capabilities of the tools that are described in 'Stealing the Network' and you will be on a pretty good road to information security knowledge. Inform yourself and find out what is possible so that you can better protect your system and know what's going on.

Don't waste your money like I did

This book confuses the issues surronding moving to VB .NET I actually found the Visual Basic .NET book that comes in the box with Visual Basic .NET standard edition much simpler and less of a hassle to read.

Where are the diagrams?

B.F. is right-on about the missing diagrams. While Kevin Loney's "Oracle 10g DBA Handbook" is excellent because it is diagram packed, "The Complete Reference" is not complete without them. I bought Mr. Loney's DBA book and love it, but his Complete Reference was passed over. I think it would be more marketable & useful if "The Complete Reference" were broken up into two volumes: "10g The Complete Reference: For DBA's VOL. 1" and "10g The Complete Reference: For Programmer's VOL. 2" and published in hardcover editions.

Excellent book for any novice on financial modeling

I have used this book and recommended to others. It is certainly one of the best books on financial modelling, especially if you are a novice in modeling. It gives step by step clear techniques for various problems. It is very easy to read, with excellent examples. Hope you can enjoy this book as much as I have.
