Just an update of an earlier work
on March 28, 2010
I bought this blind on the promise of some new work from Ferguson and Schneier. But got fooled by the different title: "Cryptography Engineering" is just an update of the first edition of "Practical Cryptography". This is good stuff by some excellent authors, but if you've already bought the first edition, there's not enough more to make it worth forking out another $40 or so.
