I have a new book. It’s Carry On: Sound Advice from Schneier on Security, and it’s my second collection of essays. This book covers my writings from March 2008 to June 2013. (My first collection of essays, Schneier on Security, covered my writings from April 2002 to February 2008.)
There’s nothing in this book that hasn’t been published before, and nothing you can’t get free off my website. But if you’re looking for my recent writings in a convenient-to-carry hardcover-book format, this is the book for you.
I’m also happy with the cover.
The Kindle and Nook versions are available now, and they’re 50% off for some limited amount of time.
Unfortunately, the paper book isn’t due in stores—either online or brick-and-mortar—until 12/27, which makes it a pretty lousy Christmas gift, though Amazon and B&N both claim it’ll be in stock there on December 16. And if you don’t mind waiting until after the new year, I will sell you a signed copy of the book here.
Suggestions for a title of my third collection of essays, to be published in five-ish years, are appreciated.

In the episode that aired on May 9th, about eight or nine minutes in, there’s a scene with a copy of Applied Cryptography prominently displayed on the coffee table.
This isn’t the first time that my books have appeared on that TV show.

Two of my books can be seen in the background in CBS’ new Sherlock Holmes drama, Elementary. Copies of Schneier on Security and Secrets & Lies are prominently displayed on Sherlock Holmes’ bookshelf. You can see them in the first few minutes of the pilot episode. The show’s producers contacted me early on to ask permission to use my books, so it didn’t come as a surprise, but it’s still a bit of a thrill.
Here’s a listing of all the books visible on the bookshelf.

Another book review. Remember, you can order your signed copies here. They make great Christmas presents.

I have a new book coming out: Schneier on Security. It’s a collection of my essays, all written from June 2002 to June 2008. They’re all on my website, so regular readers won’t have missed anything if they don’t buy this book. But for those of you who want my essays in one easy-to-read place, or are planning to be shipwrecked on a desert island without Web access and would like to spend your time there pondering the sorts of questions I discuss in my essays, or want to give copies of my essays to friends and relatives as gifts, this book is for you. There are only 90 shopping days before Christmas.
The hardcover book retails for $30, but Amazon is already selling it for $20. If you want a signed copy, e-mail me. I’ll send you a signed copy for $30, including U.S. shipping, and $40, including shipping overseas. Yes, Amazon is cheaper—and you can always find me at a conference and ask me to sign the book.
