Worst book ever written, don't believe the paid 5-star reviews.

Catherine explained why the book is mad. Read her comment for more details. The book simply should never have been written. It belongs next to "Cryptocurrency for Toddlers" on the bookshelf.

The author should be put in jail, and all the money should go to the artist (who is responsible for the only noteworthy part about the entire book).

"Is SCADA in the clouds?"
"No, that would be silly, Tommy!"

so would buying this book.

I entered into the first reads giveaway for this book because I thought it looked interesting.

I had some of my family and friends read the book hoping that they would find something positive about it. They did not. I even had people who were familiar with SCADA read the book. No one was impressed and said that it was not an ac ...more

I simply love this book. That's why I published it for Robert M. Lee. It has a duality about it that intrigues. On the one hand it is a children's book in the manner of The Magic School bus series. On the other hand it is a simple introduction to SCADA systems and the need to protect them that can be easily consumed by managers and policy makers. Rob Lee has a winner here. ...more
