I decided to take a chance on this book. I was in the mood to learn more about cybercrime and ran across this one while looking for my next book to read. The description provided by was pretty sparse, but the price was reasonable enough so I took a chance. That gamble certainly paid off because this is a very impressive book.What you aren't going to get is a detailed technical exploration of the various kinds of cybercrime that are prevalent in the world today. It's not that kind of book and that clearly was not the objective of the author. What you will find is a clearly written review of world of international cybercrime from a legal standpoint. While I would have preferred a more detailed exploration of some of the specific cybercrimes discussed in the book, it still does a reasonable job of providing the reader with a good understanding of the subject matter. Where this book really shines is how it introduces readers to the legal concepts and challenges associated with international cybercrime. The author isn't afraid to talk about complicated legal concepts, but she does so in such an approachable manner that the average reader will find it easy to follow along and understand.This book is everything you would expect and hope for from a book that was written by a law professor who is passionate and knowledgeable about the world of cybercrime. The people who would benefit the most by reading it are students who want to not only understand the current state of cybercrime activity today, but also want to walk away with a solid understanding of the associated legal concepts. That's also why I also recommend this book to experienced security practitioners.
