Beyond Fear, by Bruce Schneier, Copernicus Books, 2003.
Schneier is a world-renowned cryptography expert who literally wrote the book on the subject when he penned Applied Cryptography. In these pages, he tackles broader security issues in the wake of the 9/11 attacks.
Beyond Fear is intriguing and thought-provoking. Taking examples from the headlines and from his experiences studying homeland security issues, Schneier teaches us to avoid fear and use good sense when making security choices. He cites interesting facts to help readers keep things in perspective. For example, he reports that while many people may worry about shark attacks, more people die each year in pig attacks than shark attacks.
Schneier helps readers draw their own conclusions about which post-9/11 changes made the public more secure and which were aimed at making us feel more secure. The book's value lies in his ability to get readers to look at security problems from a different angle. -- Vince Tuesday
