I wasn't to terribly impressed with it, large margins, big type, even worse the section on PAM sucked, there wasn't one.

You can get it on CD with a whole bunch of great (and old =) security software (I should know, I was the one that did a lot of the
work on it, hah).
Again, I wasn't to terribly impressed with it, but it was a bit better then the Linux one.

Another book that's recently out and pretty decent is:
"Real world linux security"
I edited it (so am pretty familiar with it =) and it's pretty decent in my opinion.
