62 of 67 people found the following review helpful By Kenneth Ellman on September 23, 2002
Format: Hardcover
This author wrote a book on this subject on or about 1971 and I was somewhat disappointed in that edition at that time. This book is another world. You would not think this was the same writer. It may have taken thirty years or so but it was well worth the wait. I do not think there is another book available on this subject that can even begin to compare with this creation.
Rarely will you have the opportunity to read such a definitive work on any subject. Clearly this author has made this his life's work. Those who have need of a definitive, all encompassing, and detailed treatise on a subject that effects all aspects of public safety will need and want this book. You can do no better. The coverage is extraordinary and includes: An historical view and understanding going back thousands of years; Detailed and technical discussion of the evolution of protective devices and the methods used to overcome them; Current and timely information on devices now available with an in depth explanation of their differences, effectiveness, and workability; Forensic examination; Standards and Testing; and more, more, more.
This book goes way beyond the basic needs of a Locksmith or Technician into the realm of Academic Instruction into all aspects of physical device security. For the Locksmith, Detective or other Safety Professional weeks of pleasurable reading and education await you in this tomb. When you climb out let me know. The only errors I have found so far have been typographical so this work appears to be fully authorative. Any attorney engaged in litigation in this subject area must have this book. The knowledge contained herein can prevent embarrassment for any government official with responsibility for physical device security.

9 of 11 people found the following review helpful By Felipe De la Peña on July 1, 2008
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
My father has been in the security business since 1984. After the first "search inside" I knew this reference was definitively a must. When finally had it on my hands I knew I wasn't wrong, it includes practically all that you otherwise would had learned after many years of intensive practice and research. Before you buy it, check the oficial site [...] and be sure about the product you want to purchase. If you want to get deeply involved in the security business this book is what you want, but if you are already a master or you belong to a locksmith association or you work for goverment then you should give a check to the digital sources of information ofered in the on-line site.
