    Comments about oreilly Cyber Reconnaissance, Surveillance and Defense:

    I am interested in the computer science industry which led me to this book, which I find very disappointing. A very large portion of the book is reprinted transcripts of court cases. I can understand referring to court cases to get your point across but if the bulk of your book is reprinting court transcripts then you are not providing much new, useful information just providing useless filler material. I very strongly dissuade you from purchassing this book. Although this is my 1st purchase from this publisher, I am very hesitant to purchase other books from them if this is quality they publish.

    Comments about oreilly Cyber Reconnaissance, Surveillance and Defense:

    Interesting survey of tools and enjoyed the legal transcripts of real incidents. The tool discussion though is very limited and I would have appreciated more legal analysis and not just reprinting court transcripts.
