Customer opinion - 4 stars out of 5
Great book


Overall the book was a great read. I wanted to get a high overview of computer security and the different aspects of it and this book delivered. It was not too technical at all and presented everything in lay men's terms. Great book for the not so technical wanting to get a good overview.
Now my next book is Practical Cryptography!!!

Missing many key elements


This book is a great referrence... but I feel funny judging it. It's like judging an encyclopedia... just another one of MS 'Inside SQL Server' series books. It's a good referrence to keep around, has useful info, and I prefer to read paper over a monitor anyday.... I won't be returning my copy anytime soon. I only gave it a 4 star rating because there is nothing that jumps out and makes this a "gotta have this" type book... but, by all means, it's worthwhile keeping around if you work with SQL 2000 at all.

Too early to buy this book


How many of us has already installed Win2000 server and started doing some serious stuff. This book contains huge amount of info that can mostly be done only on the Win2000 server. But the book is good for knowing different kinds of technologies that go with ASP. Not recommended for beginners/midlevel

Well Organized with a good index.


I have used many a technical manual in my day and this is by far the best. You don't need anything else. I have been working with relation database management systems for close to a decade. This book has everything from undocumented DBCC commands to a description of RAID devices to transact sql help. I don't care if you are a developer or a dba get this book. You will not be disappointed.
