Tribe of Hackers Security Leaders: Tribal Knowledge from the Best in Cybersecurity Leadership, reviewed
These books are now coming out fast and furious and this is the third one that we have reviewed. You’d image they are quite easy and fast to produce as it appears that they have simply sent a template of the same questions to a wide group of industry experts to plug and play their answers. This is not necessarily a bad thing. Points in its favour would be that they have sourced smart quality collection of contributors. It also makes the book easy to format.
A possible drawback might be reader fatigue, it can be hard to differentiate and assess each interviewees responses when you have so many of them coming at you, fast and furious. This makes it possibly one to read in the toilet, in small bursts, to be able to reflect on the latest pearls of wisdom. Overall there is a lot of wisdom and insights in this book, you just might need some time to reflect and absorb it all.
Another good point in its favour is that most of the interviewees are on Twitter and have their twitter handle listed. Which means you can then follow them and get a sense of the latest things they are musing on. If you are looking to quickly get up to speed on key cybersecurity issues then this is a timely and useful book.
