About the Author

Winn Schwartau balances his time between writing, lecturing, and building corporate and national security awareness programs and consulting to multinational organizations and governments worldwide.·

Founder NiceKids.Net, a cyber-ethics web site for kids, families and teachers. He is the author of "Internet and Computer Ethics for Kids (and Parents and Teachers Without a Clue)" (2001/2002). This hit book has received rave reviews and has also been called "The best security book ever written."(Dr. Fred Cohen, It is being adopted by schools and corporations across the country.

· In 2002, he was honored as a "Power Thinker" and named one of the 50 most powerful people in networking by Network World.

· Founder of the influential InfowarCon conference, which has established itself as the premier international event on information warfare and Critical Infrastructure Protection, and Infowar. He is one of the country's leading experts on information security, infrastructure protection and electronic privacy.

· Often referred to as "the civilian architect of information warfare," he coined the term "Electronic Pearl Harbor" and was the Project Lead of the Manhattan Cyber Project Information Warfare and Electronic Civil Defense Team.

Mr. Schwartau's latest book (2002) "Pearl Harbor Dot Com" is a compelling fictional story about a Cyberterrorist attack on the United States. It underscores the need for cooperation and security awareness among all sectors of the United States, and indeed the world. It is based upon his prophetic 1991 novel, "Terminal Compromise".

Schwartau's hit "Cybershock" (2000, 2001) is a non-technical look at hackers, hacking and how important security is to families, companies and nations. It is meant for the average computer user or for organizations to help make their staffs aware of security concerns in the workplace. The principles he developed in "Time Based Security," (1999, 2001) have redefined how security is measured, and employs means to quantify network protection, detection and reaction processes.

His first non-fiction book, "Information Warfare: Chaos on the Electronic Superhighway (1994, 1996, 1997) brought the concepts of Infowar and Cyberterrorism out into the open. He called for the creation of a National Information Policy, a Constitution in Cyberspace and an Electronic Bill of Rights. The sequels, "Information Warfare: Cyberterrorism, Second Edition," were released in 1997/1998.

Is it really paranoia when they are out to get you? Those who ignored the message in the first publication should make it required reading now, as should anyone conducting business on the Internet today.
The story line in Pearl Habor Dot Com is totally credible, much like the authors credentials. Understand too that Wynn has been there, done that, and, well, given away the T-shirts! The energy and passion that he demonstrates in his everyday life as a Security Evangelist is certainly revealed within the pages of this exciting story. I looked forward to picking it up every evening and wonder still how fictional these characters really are.
Wynn, time to pick up the pen again!

Wow, I started reading this book with no emotions other than that I have known this author for a long time. In the beginning I kept looking for signs about the author and what I would recognize. The amazing thing about this book is that as you are reading, you are involved in the story and can not stop. Yes, it is a great story but you soon begin to realize that this could be reality and it is very scary. Scary to the degree that the adrenaline starts pumping and you realize that this is so real life you can only be scared that God forbid half of what Mr. Schwartau is saying could really happen. Yes, this is fiction but the kind of fiction that has you sitting on the edge of your seat (at home or a plane)begging for more yet fearing that this could really be the headlines of today. The most amazing fact is that this book was conceived many years before 9/11 and is by far scarier than anything you might be reading in today's headlines. This is a great read for a great thrill but if you pay attention the intention of this book will linger on for a very long time.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This book is, in every way, a winner. It is not only a gripping read and great fun, but it is a truly well-written scenario for an information warfare attack against the U.S. Economy.
Several years ago, in his bestselling novel Debt of Honor, Tom Clancy scratched the surface of economic information warfare. In Pearl, Winn Schwartau takes the reader through a weeks-long attack against the national information infrastructure.
However, the book is not only a thirller. It is throught-provoking in a number of ways, exploring the true psyche of the hacker community; the dependance that Western Civilization now has on Computers; and the spectre of "what if we had to live without it."
This book is must-reading for anyone who has anything to do with information security, homeland defense, or economic security.
Schwartau's latest book is not only a thriller, but is a wake-up call that clearly shows the dangers of ignoring our critical information systems.

Winn Schwartau's latest novel, PEARL HARBOR DOT COM, gives the rest of us non-computer geeks important insight into the fragility of our techno-economy and its vunerability to cyberwar or "information warfare". Winn clearly shows where and how we Americans are vunerable in our comfortable society and just where we need to wakeup to very real terrorist threats, all through telling a story that is fun reading as well... this timely volume illustrates the seriousness of our situation in a format that doesn't require computer literacy. Its important message tells us to wake up to our vunerabilities to protect ourselves and our beloved Constitution... Thanks Winn for writing a book the rest of us can read and enjoy and learn what infowar is all about. This book may be fiction, but the facts it presents are important for every American to know...

Hackers, terrorists, falling airplanes, love, betrayal, a bizarre but realistic new york journalist who gets in the middle of it all? What more could you want! Schwartau's PHDC throws all of this at you plus more! With new twists on every page, and a complex but understandable plot, this story will have your eyes glued to its pages, while you living the action as the characters do. The story opens in 1945 Hiroshima as the US drops the Atomic Bomb. We meet Homosoto, an angry, resentful Japanese boy who vows to one day get his revenge. Fifty years later, he does by waging a cyber-war against the United States. But who is on his side? Who is on ours? Why is Tucker Macy Starre in the middle of it all? Though the plot revolves around Information Technology and computers, the average person could read it and love it just as much as anyone familiar with the terms "herf gun", "back orifice" and "motherboard". Schwartau explains the technical stuff in a non-technical way, without interrupting the story or the perpetual action. His unique and down to earth writing, flows easily, allowing the story to play out in your mind. His true-to-life descriptions of his unique characters and his humorous, off-the-wall style leaves you feeling that you not only know the characters but have gone through what the have. Its a great book for anyone interested in computers, terrorism, partiotism, or who just wants an amazing read. I recommend this to everyone! But I warn you : once you start reading it, you may not stop until you finish! :)
