   Great overview of cybersecurity
The book goes into enough detail that a beginner can understand without getting heavy in the details. While the tips offered can be easily found on the internet, it was nice to have everything consolidated into a book. I consider this book as a great reference with general explanations provided by the author.
   This book is so wrong
How it works really depends on the individual. Even if you're innocent.
   Basic but well done CyberSec Texas
Ignored Linux, Servers, Tablets, but does not deal with cellular devices most of the time. I wish his book included ransomware ware, useful for undergraduate CyberSec courses.
   A different and better cybersecurity book
This book is different in that the author crosses into some technical aspects of cybersecurity, but does so in a very easy to understand manner.
   Great intro!
This quick introduction was thoroughly enjoyed. I don 't think that I could have picked a better introduction!
