    Normally, we publish book reviews by third parties rather than links to book information pages by their authors. However, Mr. Jacek Artymiak has quite a bit of content from his book available for free, and it looks to us like a valuble resource. So, perhaps, consider this as the book reviewing itself! . . . Building Firewalls with OpenBSD and PF, 2nd ed.
