This book covers a bit more than needed for the CISSP exam, since it also covers the ISSEP exam, a concentration exam "on top of" CISSP. The ISSEP is more interesting for people looking for US Government jobs.
The strong point of this book is a very good coverage of the different US legal acts about wiretapping, privacy, health care and more. Maybe the coverage is more extensive than you'll need for the CISSP exam, but it certainly doesn't hurt to get a good overview of the stuff. There's also a CD with exam questions, with answers and explanations. There's no guarantee, however, that these questions look anything like the questions you'll get during the exam.
The book has a few surprising errors, though. One really obnoxious error is that the authors tell us, several times, that analog signals are "sinus waves", while digital signals are "saw-tooth". What?! "Saw-tooth"??? Where in the world did they get that idea? I find it hard to believe they could actually go through life with a misunderstanding of that size... A weakness of all these books, for some reason, is that there's no way to report errors. Maybe they know they'd get overwhelmed.
