Lots of info, poor presentation overall
on July 15, 2014
I really couldn't stand this book when I had to use it for an upper-level university class. To be fair, the authors seem to be extremely knowledgeable on the topic, but the presentation of the information, overall, was pretty lackluster.
The grammar was actually pretty bad/confusing in places, and I sometimes found myself reading sentences multiple times to try to understand what the authors were attempting to convey. The summaries at the end of each chapter were also pretty useless. Instead of discussing the important information and facts to take away from each chapter (e.g., describing the most important cyber laws discussed, the relevant events, etc.), the authors gave a superficial list of the topics contained in the chapter, without details (e.g. "we talked about this, and this, and then this"), making the summaries pretty useless if you wanted a refresher on the important information contained within the chapter after you've read it. The glossary was also pretty sparse, making it difficult to go back and find specific information.
