If you are in any way linked to the software security industry, i.e. work in it or just have an interest, then I can't recommend this book highly enough, I could go into details of each chapter, but you're better getting it and reading it for yourself. Be warned though, it is a mighty tome and requires time and effort, but you will be richly rewarded and much better off for the experience.
Examples are based on conventional technologies which are easy to relate with. I liked the Threat Modelling section particularly.
Pour preuve, j'en ai fait la commande, j'ai reçu le "Volume 2 of 2" qui commence à la page 559 (chapitre 10), puis après un retour et une nouvelle commande, j'ai cette fois reçu le "Volume 1 of 2", qui commence bien par le début et qui contient l'intégralité du contenu (donc environ 1200 pages). Les 2 volumes ont le même ISBN.
Le problème a bien été remonté à Amazon. Donc attention !
