Content is good - writing style is horrendous

I usually buy only network security books. However, I felt tempted by the high ratings and bought this book. Well, the more I read it the more I like it. Well written, comprehensive and up to date, it is a sort of rich jumping table for finding additional information about the issues it already covers. Part two and three, are wonderful complements for people interested in 'traditional computer security'. I believe that any security administrator should be familiar with the issues discussed in those parts.I specially enjoyed the Multilevel Security and Multilateral Security chapters. Full of references, the book is well worth to have a place between your 'special books'. I plan to use it as a reference in my next security courses (for graduate students).

Outstanding Book! A must have for MySQL Programmers.

I've been programming SQL for five years, but I just recently started learning how to program on Linux. I needed to do database programming with a Web front end, so I chose Apache and MySQL, with Perl as the 'glue', by using the mod_perl module.
This book showed me concisely what I needed to get up and running. It has many great examples, is easy to read, and had me writing code in about an hour. (Had to install the .rpm's..{grin}
This book also includes a great chapter on the DBI interface for MySQL. I found this to be a good way to interface with MySQL from within the Perl modules, as it renders my code portable.
I *highly* recommend this book to anybody trying to start out, like I did.
