      Chapter one is a very simple introduction to intrusion detection and
      Snort. Beginning with a brief look at topology, chapter two runs
      through an installation of Snort, but does not provide much in the way
      of explanation or recommendation at the various points. The coverage
      of Snort rule creation and syntax, in chapter three, is clear and
      reasonable, but could use more examples of malicious packets and how
      they might be identified. Chapter four does explain some exploit
      rules, in discussing preprocessors, but briefly, and then goes on to
      output options. Chapters five, six, and seven describe MySQL, ACID
      (Analysis Console for Intrusion Databases), and other tools for using
      Snort in conjunction with collected information.

      This is a decent printed documentation for the system, but not much

      Of all things, good sense is the most fairly distributed:
      everyone thinks he is so well supplied with it that even those
      who are the hardest to satisfy in every other respect never
      desire more of it than they already have.
