“Are sales down Bruce?”

No. They’re pretty consistent from month to month. I expect the book to tail off eventually, but I don’t know when.

(And I really don’t want to do a second edition.)

Bill Higgins did an excellent wrap up of Bruce Schneiers latest book. It is giving an excellent overview of the security field indeed. It helped me to get a better understanding of the security process idea, which I was aware of, but always thought of being somewhat abstract. Bruce is making things clear and helps technical minded people like myself to think out of the box. For long time experts sometimes it may get a bit tiring, however I liked the analogies which make the book very readable. Moreover I can quote them during my own presentations! I read the German version which is well made, but I do recommend to read the book in English. The reason is, that some of the terms being used should not have been translated, because they are already widely used and even well known to German speakers with only a rough understanding of IT security.
