10 Zen Monkeys, April 2007

According to the sleeve of his latest book, Beyond Fear: Thinking Sensibly About Security, “in an Uncertain World, Bruce Schneier is the go-to security expert for business leaders and policy makers.” If only the policy makers would listen, we’d be safer, happier and still free.

Other books include Applied Cryptography, described by Wired as “the book the NSA wanted never to be published.”

Beyond Fear deals with security issues ranging from personal safety to national security and terrorism. Schneier is also a frequent contributor toWired magazine, The Minneapolis Star-Tribune, and many other fine periodicals. He also writes a monthly newsletter, Cryptogram.

I interviewed him on The R.U. Sirius Show.
