This is a very informative book. Countdown to Zero Day: Stuxnet and the Launch of the World's First Digital Weapon tells how stuxnet it was found by tech-support technicians at VirusBlokAda. At VirusBlokAda it was mainly O'Murchu and Chien that took apart Stuxnet in reverse to see what this virus/worm was made to do. They found it was only to attack specific computers and for what I think was a good reason. The book also discusses in great detail Iran's nuclear program. As we all know they are non-compliant with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), The foreign ministers from France, Germany and the UK (EU3), also the U.S.A. and many other places such as Israel, Egypt also Saudi Arabia.. You will learn in great detail about transforming one type of nuclear matter into another. I came away from this book not only learning what kinds of virus's exist but how they work. The fact that if you have enough money you can buy any type of virus, worm, etc. due to the fact that there are actual businesses that exist that look for exploits in all computer programs and sell them. I found that amazing.  Stuxnet showed everyone how dangerous Iran's nuclear program was to the whole world. But this is just a tip of the iceberg of what the book is about. The book has great footnotes throughout that lists the writers sources and explains information that would otherwise make it a thousand page book. You will find that the footnotes are worth reading! I think this book would be a good read for people interested in computers, nuclear programs and Iran.
