Custom Covers and Branded Editions

A few different organizations have asked for a branded cover to use BTHb as part of their marketing program.  Information on Branded Covers is summarized below:

1) The lower portion, beneath the white area, can be customized with a color scheme and text particular to your organization.

2) The ISBN / Bar Code area on the back of the book cannot be moved.

3) Customized editions are delivered through an organization specific site hosted by CreateSpace, and are not available through any other distribution method. 

4) There is a nominal setup fee to manage the book customization and creation process. 

5) You will receive the same content as the ​currently shipping version on Amazon (2.2 as of 10/20/2016).

6) You may request specific interior content for your organizational copy. 

Praise for BTHb:INRE: "This guide is chock full of useful information for infosec pros, especially blue team members and incident handlers.  You could read it end-to-end for a treasure-trove of useful tips and tricks, or just keep it close by as a handy reference.  Or both!"  -- Ed Skoudis, Counter Hack.
