I set aside the entire day for reading the book Writing Secure Code for Windows Vista. And I was already able to put it back into the bookshelf thanks to its concise nature. The authors only tell the reader about "What's new and changed", without having people wade through tons of stuff they already know. I really greatly appreciate that the authors did not do a third edition of Writing Secure Code just for bringing developers up to speed on Vista security.
Hint to book publishers: other areas would also benefit from this approach. There is only so much time to read books, and I don't want to skim through information I already know. Please consider catering to non-noobs by offering more of these "What's new and changed" types of books to us old dogs.
PS: Way cool to be mentioned in a security book! (p27)
