An impeccable and important work that security people can push into
the hands of others [...] who want an authoritative, yet
crisply-written book on security. * Professional Security *
... a deceptively easy read in that there are ten bite-size takeaway nuggets of digestible information that will make you more aware, informed and alert. Where Martin scores heavily is in the authenticity he brings to the subject, making his set of ideas less of a management self-help book and more of a first step towards protecting your assets. * Nick Smith, E & T Magazine *
