About the Cover

 < Day Day Up > 

The front cover of this book holds a lot of significance for Jamie and me. We designed this cover ourselves, with the help of a wonderfully talented Brazilian artist named Paulo. The person depicted on the front is a historical Japanese figure called a Samurai. (We mean no disrespect by taking some creative license in depicting the character.) We chose him because he represents the artistry of his craft, strength of character, and the fact that his art was essential to his culture and its leaders. He also represents the importance of recognizing the interconnectedness of the world in which we live.

The sword is the tool of the Samurai, the object of his skill. You'll notice that his sword is centered in the picture, and driven into the ground. From the sword springs roots that signify growth and depth of knowledge. The roots become circuits to represent knowledge of computer technology and the tools of the rootkit developer. The kanji characters behind him mean "to gain knowledge."

We think this is an apt description of our work. Jamie and I are continually learning and updating our knowledge. We are pleased to be able to impart what we've learned to others. We want you to see the incredible power that rests in the roots you can create.
