The papers, individually and collectively, contain a wealth of information. However, anyone who wants to use this book as a resource for preparing for the CISSP exam should know that this book is Volume 1 of a three volume set. Moreover, this is not a book that was written as a study guide as much as a professional reference, and it isn't the only book a CISSP candidate should read.
For the practitioner this book is an excellent investment because it does cover all ten CBK domains in great detail. However, I recommend investing in the CD ROM version of this book (Information Security Management Handbook on CD-ROM, ISBN 0849312345), which contains this book and Volumes 2 and 3. The CD ROM is more up-to-date and is more convenient then three books that combined contain nearly 2000 pages.
Regardless of whether you opt for this book or the CD ROM, you'll gain a wealth of knowledge from this book and if used in conjunction with other sources of information you will be well prepared to pass the CISSP exam.
The benefit of the book is that it is very broad in scope. Readers will be able to get a handle on the CBK (Common Body of Knowledge), on which the CISSP exam is based. Nonetheless, the breadth of the CBK means that the Handbook can't be simply read over a long weekend. It takes a lot of time to assimilate the myriad information.
Given that there is no comprehensive study guide for the exam, anyone planning on sitting for the CISSP exam will find himself or herself referring to the Handbook fairly often.
The only downside to the book is that since there are so many authors involved with the content of the book, there is a lack of consistent verbiage in it.
But even for those that don't plan on sitting for the CISSP exam, they will find that the Handbook is a great security reference.
If you are looking for an all inclusive study-guide for the CISSP cert then this book is not for you. However, it is easily arguable that no book can be an all inclusive tome of the expansive subject matter the certification covers. I highly recommend the recommended reading list on the ISC2 web site.
Normally you would prepare for the CISSP exam by doing your own research guided by the CISSP Study Guide and searching the internet for sources that cover the designated areas. That means you would have to read through and discard many badly written documents of questionable value. It would be really nice to have an organized set of sources covering the 10 CISSP domains, so that one could skip the research and concentrate on the study!
Although the ISM Handbook is arranged along the ten domains, it is far from being an organized set of sources. As you go through it, you still have to read through and discard many badly written chapters of questionable value---something that would normally be done by the editors, but not in this case. In between the fillers you will discover some really good material, but the ratio useful/useless is probably not any higher than in many online sources, such as the SANS Institute and NIST.
