I gave it 2 stars as some of the book recommendations were useful. Also some of the questions weren't well answered by some authors (as weren't really relevant to what they were doing). I also didn't find questions such as "What is your specialty in cybersecurity" very useful - maybe if I was a recruiter?
Not sure if I'd pay $38 for pretty much the same advice given for most of the questions.
Having said that if you're trying to break into infosec - reading how each of the authors got into infosec may encourage you to give it a go.
Most of the authors tend to hype up their experience (nothing wrong with that if you're on linkedin - but I'm not sure I'd want to pay $38 for it thou)
Forgot to mention - I'm fairly successful in infosec but I've never networked or conferenced. That seems to be the consistent advice given by the authors, not sure that's needed. Those beginning in infosec should spend all their waking hours on honing the craft, networking/conferencing is a distraction in the early stages of your career.
