After reading Daemon and Freedom TM this is a great book that continues to be in the technical style and sensibility you'd expect from Suarez. Good read and worth the credit. Jeff Gurner is great as always for the narration.
This book gives great insight into what the problem may be in today's make students and stresses on teams and competition as a way to save them. If you have young sons this is a great way to get information on ideas on how to help raise them. This book makes lots of sense. It also encourages parents to take those video games away. They sap the motivation and drive right out of your children.
You'll enjoy the character development and historical references. Plot takes you to both sides of the conflict. The story deals with the political, military and personal stories of the characters. It's a great read.
Great story told by the person that lived it. I know there are a bunch of people out there that hate on Mitnick quite a bit. They have to understand that this was quite a different time and place in those days. He has a skill that all security professionals strive to sharpen. Social Engineering. This is one of the single most valuable assets a security professional can have and he stone cold nailed it back in the day. I would recommend this book highly.
I know it has the high powered political support in the beginning by Newt Gingrich but I wasn't impressed with that. The book didn't need that. The content was awesome and the story was great. It also carries plausibility in reference to the real world. Great Book!
Couldn't get enough. The kind of book that could make you late for work because you want to stay in the car and see what's going to happen next!
I read the 1st one Deamon. It was awesome. This one is even better. this is a must have for any tech geek or security professional in any line of work.
C'mon don't kid yourself. It tells you some of the stuff you should be doing already. Or the stuff you don't have the fortitude to do right now. But it's a slap into reality that every manager should hear. I'd like to give this book to the management @ 2 of the "Big Three" automakers namely the biggest. Boy do they ever need to hear this!
This book had great information about the tech. The real-world examples made it a thriller at times. Technical people will appreciate this book. The political analysis and back-drop help paint a precise picture of the time periods.
Grenada account is very interesting. What a life this guy had! Gormly also appears and is mentioned in the book Kill Bin Laden by Dalton Fury. Just a testament to how deeply important to the Special Forces in general Gormly was. He is truly an accomplished "operator". The Vietnam accounts were the best part of this book in my opinion.
