Does arming pilots make flying safer?
Will computerized voting machines make election results more accurate?
Is online shopping with credit cards especially risky?
Will a national ID card better protect us from terrorism?
If you read the newspapers or listen to the pundits you might
answer "yes" to these questions, but the truth will surprise you.
Security experet Bruce Schneier has spent his entire career
figuring out how security actually works, and he explains it all
in this entertaining and readable book. Beyond Fear goes beyond
the hype, and explains how we call can think sensibly about security. In
today's uncertain world, security is too important to be left to
others. Drawing from his experience advising world business
and political leaders, Schneier demonstrates the practical
— and surprisingly simple — steps we can all take to
address the real threats faced by our families, our communities,
and our nation.
