What I'm Reading (5 Oct 2008)


Technical: Counter Hack Reloaded by Ed Skoudis with Tom Liston

It's a security book and I'm rather late getting a review of it written for PASS. Ed Skoudis is also a well known instructor in the security field and considered an expert by many. Therefore, anything that makes me sharper on security in today's uncertain world is a must.

Personal Growth: The Exemplary Husband by Stuart Scott (not the ESPN analyst)

This book presents a Biblical based account on how to be a better husband. Servant leadership, sacrificial love for one's wife, and setting the example in humility, gentleness, tenderness, but also strength and courage are the marks of a husband who strives to follow Christ's example. This is very different than how some present the role of the husband, but it's very much in line with Scripture. Anything I can do to be a better husband to my wife is something I need to do.

For Fun: Complete Defense to King Pawn Openings by Eric Schiller

I despise the Caro-Kann when facing it over the chessboard. It's a solid opening and it has always given me fits. Since I'm primarily a 1. e4 player as White, I must be prepared to face it. So I'm looking at it from Black's perspective to understand where the problem points are so I can both teach it to my oldest son (it matches his style of play) and attack it in over the board play.
