"At 166 pages, the book is a great introduction to the topic. What it covers in breadth it lacks in depth, and it's hoped the author will follow-up with a much more detailed and comprehensive book. 'Essential Cybersecurity Science' lives up to its title and is indeed an essential reference. Those looking enhance their information security program with defensible data and metrics will certainly find this book a useful reference."
