    I have just finished reading this book and found it to be very informative. Though it covers a wide area, this was pitched at just the right level. With enough detail for those that like it, but not too deep for those that are not technologists. In an easy to read format, with insightfull extracts from other sources, I would reconmend this to anyone wanting a slightly more detailed entry level introduction to Cyber Warfare.
