    Comments about oreilly Logging and Log Management:

    This is my first purchase of a Syngress book. It appears to have great content (am still in Chapter 1 after a quick review) but the quantity of language errors is very distracting. It's clear the editing of the book was not adequate. Hopefully this isn't an indication of the general level of quality of the products from Syngress.

    In going to the Syngress web site, I was unable to find or report the errors. Obviously, they still have a few things to learn from O'Reilly.
