Click on the cover image above to read some pages of this book! A generation ago, "cyberspace" was just a term from science fiction, used to describe the nascent network of computers linking a few university labs. Today, our entire modern way of life, from communication to commerce to conflict, fundamentally depends on the Internet. And the cybersecurity issues that result challenge literally everyone: politicians wrestling with everything from cybercrime to online freedom; generals protecting the nation from new forms of attack, while planning new cyberwars; business executives defending firms from once unimaginable threats, and looking to make money off of them; lawyers and ethicists building new frameworks for right and wrong.
Most of all, cybersecurity issues affect us as individuals. We face new questions in everything from our rights and responsibilities as citizens of both the online and real world to simply how to protect ourselves and our families from a new type of danger.
And yet, there is perhaps no issue that has grown so important, so quickly, and that touches so many, that remains so poorly understood. Singer and noted cyber expert Allan Friedman team up to provide the kind of easy-to-read, yet deeply informative resource book that has been missing on this crucial issue of 21st century life. Written in a lively, accessible style, filled with engaging stories and illustrative anecdotes, the book is structured around the key question areas of cyberspace and its security: how it all works, why it all matters, and what can we do?
Along the way, they take readers on a tour of the important and entertaining issues and characters of cybersecurity, from the "Anonymous" hacker group and the Stuxnet computer virus to the new cyber units of the Chinese and U. The timely book brings thoughtful, witty, and balanced analysis to this very important emerging discussion And if you think you know a lot about these topics, this is still the book for you.
It's thorough, exhaustive, and easy to read This book makes that possible -- and also fascinating.
It's everything you need to know about cybersecurity, wonderfully presented in a clear and smart way. Singer and Friedman know how to make even the most complicated material accessible and even entertaining, while at the same time making a powerful case for why all of us need to know more and think harder about the cyber world we know live in. From the fundamentals of Internet architecture to the topical intrigue of recent security leaks, this book provides an accessible and enjoyable analysis of the current cybersecurity landscape and what it could look like in the future.
This is a clarion call.

Until I read this astonishing and important book, I didn't know how much I didn't know about the hidden world of cybersecurity and cyberwar. Singer and Friedman make comprehensible an impossibly complex subject, and expose the frightening truth of just how vulnerable we are.
Understanding these often-invisible threats to our personal and national security is a necessary first step toward defending ourselves against them. This is an essential read. Whether you work in business or politics, the military or the media-or are simply an ordinary citizen-this is an essential read.

The authors have distilled the key facts and policy, provided sensible recommendations, and opened the debate generally to any informed citizen: a singular achievement. A must read for practitioners and scholars alike. Help Centre. Track My Order. By the time the end of the book the pages run on with filler as if to make a page quota.
Add to this is a narrator whose sing song delivery is more fitting narrating a book on the joy of kite flying than what is supposed to be a serious subject. This book is not the concise and crisp covering of the subject matter I hoped it would be.
What disappointed you about Cybersecurity and Cyberwar? I started this book and was quickly disappointed with its lack of content. The first part gives the reader some random facts about the history of the internet and cybersecurity, some generic technical information and that was about it. I was not impressed but I kept going. The second part of the book got me puzzled. How could the authors display such a poor understanding or such a poor confidence in the power of distributed architecture, open source software and basically everything that makes the Internet.

I went from being not impressed to feeling I was wasting my time but I kept going. Then came the part where the authors make recommendations. In short, their solution is lots of government supervision, hire lots of people and spend lots of money. There is nothing in the book about how to manage risk.
It is all about avoiding risk at all cost. There is no practical recommendations that organizations concerned with their bottom line can implement…. Then I gave up. I must admit I did not finish the book. My only rational explanation is that this book is a job application by the authors to some government job. This book is definitely designed for those people who if almost every chapter there's a point where they bring up something that you don't know then this book is definitely for you.
This is the iceberg A tip today gives rise to another tomorrow. This fills in the blanks for those seeking understanding of the cyber domain and cyber security. I recommend following the guidelines provided in the book to protect yourself. Mr Singer and Mr Friedman are incredibly thoughtful and thought provoking writers. This book introduces a great many policy conversations. Thank you Peter and Allan. Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why? I would only recommend this to someone looking for the backstory on alot of the larger "cyber" stories that have hit the headlines over the past few years.
What did you like best about this story? Told in a very competent manner, never too technically heavy, and only sometimes too light. Any additional comments? Overall, don't listen to this book expecting to come out with l33t hacking skills. They barely skim over the technical "how to" in passing. If you're looking for a technical manual, look else where. But this does give you some of the back story, and elaborates further on matters such as StuxNet, and other headline grabbing cyber stories.
If you're already well versed in InfoSec, you may not gain too much from this audiobook, but it acts as a good introduction. I enjoyed it, and would recommend it with these caveats. I really enjoyed this, I used to put it on at night before sleep or when on the bus. A couple of years old, but still a thorough summary of the cyber threat landscape.
Great start point for anyone wanting to learn about the evolution of the internet and cyberspace, better understand the current issues and what we can expect in the near future.
