C'est un ensemble d'articles ayant majoritairement étaient publiés sur le blog de l'auteur.
Les sujets traités sont vastes et bien présentés (vie privée, sécurité, cybercrime, etc.).
Un bon livre pour avoir une vision globale des problématiques, verrous et [débuts de] solutions.
En vue de la qualité et du volume d'informations, des pistes bibliographiques et du travail didactique et pédagogique, c'est à mon sens une bonne réussite avec un très bon rapport qualité prix.

Although I didn't think the book was good. I am still glad I bought it. Simply for the value my purchase does to the visibility of Bruce's writing and if some money gets back to him, all the better. So I put this in the camp of donations I send to open-source projects that I utilize. That would be a nice function for Amazon to add, a way to donate to open-source projects through amazon.
The roughly 175 essays in the book represent a collection of articles Schneier wrote for this Crypto-Gram newsletter, his blog and other blogs, magazines, newspapers and other periodicals.
Some of the articles, such as the 2008 piece Chinese Cyberattacks: Myth of Menace are clearly dated. A number of the other articles are somewhat redundant in that they were written on the same topic for different audiences.
But the vast majority of the essays reveal Schneier’s insight and pragmatic approach, which makes this a most important book to read. You may not agree with Schenier on every point, but every point of his is well researched and defended. Personally, I think his approach to CCTV’s and public cameras as a method for crime reduction needs to be reviewed against current data on the topic.
Many of the essays show his deep frustration with Washington and the politics of security; which has resulted in creating a security theatre dealing with movie-plot threats. Billions of dollars have been spent in this area, with almost nothing to show for it.
Another premise of the book is that most people don’t understand how to deal with risk and end up worrying about things that pose very little risk to them; of which a large number of essays are dedicated to this topic. Schenier notes the fears people have of school shootings, child abduction, mass food poisonings and the like, all of which are extremely rare. They worry about these while being oblivious do automobile deaths, DUI deaths and similar, which pose real and daily risks.
When it comes to post-9/11 security, Schneier feels most of the time, money and effort has gone to waste, protecting against imaginary threats. He notes that two things have made airplane travel safe post 9/11, namely: reinforcing the cockpit door, and convincing passengers that they need to fight back. But having tens of thousands of clueless and incompetent TSA agents seizing water bottles and patting down wheelchair-bound grannies have done absolutely nothing to increase air safety.
The book is both fascinating and frustrating. Fascinating in that the book will open your eyes to how to deal with risk and security, and ultimately how to carry on. But frustrating in that those in Washington who have been trusted to do this, have rarely done it right.
In Carry On: Sound Advice from Schneier on Security, Schneier writes the playbook that Washington should have been following all along.
In addition, the short format of each segment means that it's impossible to get into any real depth about a particular subject. While this might be fine for a non-technical reader, I doubt that anyone who is specifically purchasing Bruce Schneier's new book is going to be "non-technical."
However, the content is good. This should be obvious. I mean, it's Bruce Schneier for crying out loud. It's going to have good content. It's worth purchasing to peruse on the bus, be able to look up an interesting article or two when the mood strikes you. It just shouldn't be thought of as a "book" book.
Some of the notes are a bit dated, but Schneier hits the mark on every one. You may not agree with him on every point, but where you don't he elicits a thought process that in itself is valuable
