"A primer in practical computer security aimed at those shopping, communicating, or doing business online — almost everyone, in other words."
The Economist

David Ropeik, author of How Risky Is It, Really?

"The closest the security industry has to a rock star."
The Register

What you think you know about security is probably all wrong

We seem to be more security-conscious now than at any time in our history, yet the headlines scream of bombings, mass shootings, Chinese cyberattacks, and the NSA perusing your e-mail.

What's wrong here?

Widely acclaimed as the quintessential security expert, Bruce Schneier might also be seen as the conscience of the security industry. The bestselling author of Secrets and Lies and Liars and Outliers has been sounding the alarm for years. This collection of more than 155 of Schneier's most thought-provoking essays provides an unvarnished look at what's not working, what can work, and why we need to get busy.

It's time we listened.
