"Just as Applied Cryptography was the bible for cryptographers in the 90's, so Secrets and Lies will be the official bible for INFOSEC in the new millennium. I didn't think it was possible that a book on business security could make me laugh and smile, but Schneier has made this subject very enjoyable."
- Jim Wallner, National Security Agency
"The news media offer examples of our chronic computer security woes on a near-daily basis, but until now there hasn't been a clear, comprehensive guide that puts the wide range of digital threats in context. The ultimate knowledgeable insider, Schneier not only provides definitions, explanations, stories, and strategies, but a measure of hope that we can get through it all."
- Steven Levy, author of Hackers and Insanely Great
"This book should be - and can be - read by any business executive, no specialty in security required. It will alter the way you do business. Anyone reading Secrets and Lies will immediately understand that security involves everything: where you work, how you work, and who you work with. In this remarkable book, security is a metaphor for all business-related issues. It provides a unique understanding of the digital age and is a handbook for understanding business problems and challenges. At Walker Digital, we spent millions of dollars to understand what Bruce Schneier has deftly explained here."
- Jay S. Walker, Founder, priceline.com and Chairman, Walker Digital
"Good security is good business. And security is not (just) a technical issue; it's a people issue! Security expert Bruce Schneier tells you why and how. If you want to be safe, you should read this book before the other side does!"
- Esther Dyson, chairman, EDventure Holdings
