    The reviewer makes it sound very enticing!

    My own experience is that the person just starting out needs hands-on help, in addition to a book.

    A thought-provoking quote:

    I've spoken at length with the System Administrator on the college campus where I worked, and he would agree with this statement. (It applies also to the home user, of course)

    The challenge is in teaching security behavior and policies to the continuing influx of new people. He has been pretty successful. Whether a home user, or an institution - - a well-thoughout plan, integrating policies with instruction, is the best way to start.

    A book like this would be a supplement, but not a replacement, for this.
