Tradepub is Giving Away “Learning Network Forensics” For Free, Here’s the Link

I just got an email offer for a free digital copy of “Learning Network Forensics” by Samir Datt (2016).  This is a PACKT book that was just released this year.  It is currently selling for $49.99 on Amazon.  I have not read it yet, but it has been on my reading list.  Here is link I used to get it.
