    Makes for an interesting read on historical computer virus but has limited use for modern day virus research. Found myself just flicking to sections of interest after the first view chapters. Overall an enjoyable read.

    Peter Szor's book describes most of the attack types, defense strategies, analysis methods and famous viruses known up to about 2005. Though with new military threats like Stuxnet and just the fact that these things change by the year, the book may seem a bit dated now, but most of what is in the book should still be perfectly relevant. The author does occasionally moralize about the creation of viruses, including when it is entirely out of curiosity, which put me off a little.

Aside from that, the book is a pretty solid choice if you want information about viruses and virus research.
