I would highly recommend.

Cyber Security for Beginners is a book I would highly recommend, if only to begin to understand how Cyber Security affects every person and why we need to be that little more vigilant online. I think the real bonus was the personable nature the author put across in his style of writing. He was humble, patient with his explanations and even humorous, at times.

Well written book...

Being a person who is unashamedly lazy when it comes to reading, I knew I was looking for a book that would keep my interest and not get too bogged down in the jargon and technical terms of Cyber Security. After all, I was a beginner and I didn’t want to overwhelm myself any more than I knew it would be, being such an extensive subject.

Excellent introduction

Mr. Lester Evans does an excellent work at doing an introduction about the general concepts of cybersecurity. In my opinion, the book is written for a "business-like" kind of reader and not so much for a technical person.

A good general explanation of Cybersecurity

A well thought out, intelligently written book on digital security issues and how to combat them, both before and after an attack. Great use of index of terms with their definitions at the end of the book.

Informative and engaging.

I was surprised how enjoyable I found this book. Cyber security is a potentially dry topic but this makes it interesting, informative and engaging, it used good, clear examples at each step. It wasn’t too long and it didn’t get caught up in technical detail, but it did cover all of the main components and objectives that running cyber for an enterprise environment requires.

Easy to read Highly recommended.

This book unpacked the subject in a straightforward and understandable way. I think it is great if you want to get into this subject as a profession or just need to understand it for work, as a journalist, business exec etc. Highly recommended.

No significant issues, best book.

Not a bad book. It just didn't cover the issues we were looking for. Looks like it would be OK for someone who doesn't have many issues with Cyber security. For those who have a minor amount of savvy regarding the issue you might want to look elsewhere

Excellent Beginner's Resource

The book was informative if you know nothing about cyber security. It is very basic. Good for someone that just needs to know the very entry level info, this book isn’t for someone interested in getting into this field.

Overall good book. Introduces network scanning, encryption, firewalls, and VPNs as well as the concepts used to attack and protect networks. In addition to concepts the author provides a good short list of tools and example commands to help get started.

Makes complex principles understandable

The Teacher (Lester Evans ) knows the subject matter. He is the first person who taught sub-netting to my understanding.And now he comes with hacking. He Makes complex principles very simple to grasp. Everyone must read his books.
