These are definitely great books. I recommend every shop I'm in keep
copies on the shelves as references and for Jr. Analysts or those that
don't come from a Network Security Monitoring background. Nowhere
else that I'm aware of really spells out what NSM is and how to do it
right like Bejtlich's Tao.
