THE WORM, The First Digital World War

By Mark Bowden

 

Publisher:  Atlantic Monthly Press, New York

Copyright:  2011 BY Mark Bowden

ISBN:  13:978-0-8021-1983-4

Do not walk!  Run to purchase this must read book!  Yes, I did say, run to purchase this must read book…it is a must for anyone who owns or uses a computer at home or at work.

The Worm, The First Digital World War is exciting, thought provoking, scary, and so well written that this non-fiction book reads like fiction…like science fiction.  Mr. Bowden is a great story teller who feeds us palpable facts in a easy way to understand.  You don’t have to be a techie to learn from this non-fiction book about the Conficker worm.

I was so stirred up by this book that I called my 17 ¾ year old grandson who wants to go to college next year to major in criminology and computers, to tell him about the book and urged him not only to read it, but to go into the field of computer security.  We need smart, talented young people like my grandson to go into this field to help protect us from a devastating situation as described by Mark Bowden in The Worm, The First Digital World War.

I couldn’t put the book down.  I read it in 3 days, which I think is a record for me.  I don’t think you will be able to put it down either!
