Description: From O'Reilly: Computer security is an ongoing process, a relentless contest between system administrators and intruders. A good administrator needs to stay one step ahead of any adversaries, which often involves a continuing process of education. If you're grounded in the basics of security, however, you won't necessarily want a complete treatise on the subject each time you pick up a book. Sometimes you want to get straight to the point. That's exactly what the new Linux Security Cookbook does. Rather than provide a total security solution for Linux computers, the authors present a series of easy-to-follow recipes--short, focused pieces of code that administrators can use to improve security and perform common tasks securely.

Pros: Great tips
Cons: Not comprehensive

As the description states, this book is not a comprehensive manual on securing a Linux system from the ground up. So it's not recommended for a security newbie looking for a basic manual or security HOWTO. What it does provide are a series of handy tips and techniques on hardening your systems security. This book is packed with really powerfull tips that even a seasoned sysadmin would find usefull.
