1) This book is fast paced.
2) Every point is made succinctly and not blabbered on, so it keeps your interest througout.
3) Provides lots of examples to help relate. Many are errors in MS Word 2000, which also makes it interesting to read.
4) Covered many distinct types of approaches, so is very thorough and organized. Different types of testing, types of attack within each type of testing, how/what/when details of the attack is all listed. Nothing left out.
5) Aimed towards newbies to testing, but is a good quick refresher resource for those who have been into testing for a little bit.
What it does well is provide a clear understanding of what it means to "think like a tester." I recommend also that QA managers give it to their greenest team members. They will undoubtedly become better testers as a result.
However, if you're someone who has been in QA for several years, all of these attacks are going to be obvious--and ones that you almost certainly will already consider a part of your regular testing repertoire.
Even still, it's fun reading about some of the extant bugs in shipping Microsoft products, with step-by-step instructions on how to make them happen. I also like the freeware that comes with it--it's limited in scope, but still quite useful for certain testing situations.
