"I was surprised to find that such a thin book, (Cisco Secure Internet Security Solution) could contain such in depth coverage of Cisco routers, Cisco firewalls as well as sample solutions for security threats and detected intrusions. But this well-rounded book seems to get right to the point and explains everything in full detail."
