Read this book. It's free.

I have been reviewing security books for over twenty years now.  When I think of 
how few are really worthwhile that gets depressing.

However, Ross Anderson is always worth reading.  And when Ross Anderson first 
published "Security Engineering" I was delighted to be able to tell everyone that it 
was a worthwhile read.  If you are, in any way, interested in, or working in, the 
field of security, there is something there for you.  Probably an awful lot.

When Ross Anderson made the first edition available online, for free, and then 
published the second edition, I was delighted to be able to tell everyone that they 
should buy the second edition, but, if they didn't trust me, they should read the 
first edition free, and then buy the second edition because it was even better.

Now Ross has made the second edition available, online, for free:

Everyone should read it, if they haven't already done so.

(I am eagerly awaiting the third edition  :-)
