Book Review - Click Here To Kill Everybody

Click Here To Kill Everybody

By: Bruce Schneier

Book Reivew

This is a tough book written by an industry expert with an established record of dealing with internet security. Its click-bait title is annoying and will inevitably cause a more than occasional eye roll. The first part of the book is depressing and it can feel overstated. Just read some people's reviews of it and you can see this affect is common. I actually started the book and then put it down for a few months.

Bruce is not a reactionary, a blowhard, nor a conspiracy theorist. He deals with the inconvenient realities of internet security that we don't want to hear. His approach is data-driven and permeated with real world examples. He doesn't just tell us the problem. He offers a detailed solution as well.

If someone just reads this book, they may not see what I am talking about. Bruce Schneier also also sends out a monthly email digest that I have been getting for the last few years. Bruce is a needed voice that has slowly helped me to think through the problems of internet security.

Book Reviews

I am nuts about books. I read on all kinds of topics. I attempt to review each book I read for the sake of my own enrichment as well as conversation starters with others.

Pastoral Ministry

God has called me to be a pastor, and occasionally I have some pastoral thoughts I like to share.

You never know what you will find in an attic! Usually there is a hodgepodge of things buried under dust.
