Publisher: Sams
Authors: Stephen Walther
Rating: 3/5
Customer opinion - 3 stars out of 5
Not Updated for Final Release


I purchased this book with the assurance that it had been updated for the final ASP.NET release. This is NOT ture. The infomation and examples are still based on pre-release code. After reader a section, I try out the example and find it will not run.
I contacted the publisher and they indicated this has been a problem with the author who has refused to do the work. They offered me my money back which I did not take as I still find value in the book as long as I check the up to date syntax.

Thorough discussion of Intrusion Detection


Simply the best in the subject. I am pretty long in Network Security and while a I was in a learning stage, was looking for book like this. Today I have it and I still learned from it. A lot. It is in depth on the subject. People who are in Network Security should have it.

The Embedded System Design Process


This book is not about writing software for embedded systems. If that is what you want to learn about, you should read David Simon's book, "An Embedded Software Primer". However, this book does an excellent job of covering the PROCESS of designing embedded systems, from microprocessor selection to system debugging, and discusses the many engineering tradeoffs that need to be made in the design of real-world systems.
As a useful trilogy, I would recommend:1) David Simon's book for learning how to write embedded software.2) Jack Ganssle's "The Art of Designing Embedded Systems" for tips, tricks, and strategies on being a good embedded software designer.3) This book, for understanding the engineering decisions that need to be made in the design of an embedded system, and for learning about the debugging tools and techniques available as well.
