"...an excellent overview of the topic...It looks at the information security aspect of cyberwarfare, as well the military, sociological and other aspects...this book should indeed be read by everyone in Washington, as they are making decisions on the topic, without truly understanding it."--Slashdot.org, RSAConference.com ,August 4 2014
