Dictionary, not a Study Guide

This is someone reading a dictionary of CISSP terms, not a CISSP study guide. IMO, it's not worth an Audible credit. (The Kindle version is a very reasonable $2.99 if you feel this book will be helpful). If you want an audio CISSP book, Phil Martin's "Essential CISSP Exam Guide: Updated for the 2018 CISSP Body of Knowledge" is a better value.

Interesting book

The book covers all that you have to know to say the least. I'll know better when I step through my examination, yet this gives off an impression of being a decent book for rapidly inspecting the wide scope of subjects on the CISSP.
