At long last, we put the finishing touches on our new book (XSS Attacks), the cover art, and sample chapter (including ToC). It’ll be sent to the printers May 5 and shipped a few days after. Woohoo!
I’ve written two book forewords in the past, but this is my first experience as an author so I’m really excited about the release. Only a couple years ago the idea of an entire book dedicated to XSS would have been crazy. Today the general feeling is that there’s FINALLY going to be one available. Especially for me who must explain the finer points daily.
In writing this book, the shock to me was how much there is about XSS to cover. In fact there was so much data we had to cut back a significant amount, otherwise we’d have to write two books. What this also means is that the content found within the pages is high quality and densely packed. Great for people just getting up to speed on XSS and a solid reference for those who desire a deeper understanding of the attack technique specifics currently scattered all over.
I also wanted to give major kudos to the other authors who made this possible RSnake, Anton Rager, and especially Seth Fogie and pdp (architect), who really went above and beyond. You guys rocked. And thank you to Andrew Williams (Managing Editor, Syngress Publishing), a publisher I’d highly recommend to anyone and hope to work with again in the future. Writing a technical book is hard, really hard, and there is no substitute for a good team.
