Everything You Need to Know About the Next Attack–And Fun,
February 6, 2002
This book is a based on a *non-fiction* manuscript about U.S. vulnerabilities to electronic that was so hot that the author's lawyers insisted he turn it into a novel to avoid liability.It is absolutely superb and written by one of the most authoritative persons around. Unlike most academic and industry security specialists, the author has from the very beginning understood, respected, and been in touch with the elite hackers who worked very hard in the 1980's to expose the outrageously vulnerable electronic systems used by our financial, transportation, power, and communications industries.
In my view, books like this as well as the non-fiction books such as “Information Warfare: Chaos on the Electronic Superhighway” have been vital elements in educating consumers, stockholders, and voters. If you want to know just how vulnerable your bank account is, read this book.
I won't reveal the surprise ending, but will say that it is absolutely a shocker, and totally credible.
