Review of InfoSec Career Hacking Posted

Amazon.com just posted my two star review of InfoSec Career Hacking. This write-up is for those of you who say I don't write enough negative reviews. I was particularly upset to see 3 of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 book's 12 chapters are reprints. This is a disturbing trend. Syngress is using chapters from older books as filler for new titles that can't stand on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir own. From cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 review:

InfoSec Career Hacking (ICH) is a confused, directionless book. It's a collection of contributions by various authors, three of which were previously published. The main text never states cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 goal of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 text, so I turned to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 description on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 back cover: "A technical guide to landing (and keeping) a job in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 information security field... If you want to refine those skills to land a top InfoSec job and employer-funded trip to Vegas next year, you've come to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 right place." It sounds like ICH wants to be a sort of employment guide for "hackers," but it ends up as a muddle of some useful original material and recycled chapters from older Syngress titles.
