This would be $40 well spent for those who really need it.
I'm glad to see a book that discusses Linux security without glossing over the basics or assuming that everyone in the world knows what a buffer overflow is. Sure, if you've been using Linux for a while, you already know how to turn off services and install packages, and if you follow security, you've heard of buffer overflows. However, the Linux community is growing at a rapid pace with newbies who want to learn. This book will be of great help to them, despite its small flaws.
