 What Others are Saying…

I’m a new person in the security field and found your two books enlightening. It is almost impossible to wrap your arms around the security process for FSO’s let alone trying to navigate through JPAS on your own. Both of your books have been able to give me an understanding of JPAS from a conceptual view of whole picture than it’s broken down into individual parts and brought back to a whole view again.
