I was reading through some of this book on google: http://books.google.ca/books?id=qmdCs_Jf2AEC

It is uploaded to a hungarian website here: http://denialofservice.uw.hu/index.html

I was reading... until I realized it was printed in 2004, almost 10 years ago.

Is anything written in this book of any value whatsoever anymore?

I was focusing on this section in particular as I think I have a few ideas of my own concerning Proof-of-Work DDoS mitigation techniques: http://denialofservice.uw.hu/ch07lev1sec6.html

darkAsPitch, your question is too localized; you could do better than provide links of unknown quality and questionable legality. –  Deer Hunter Apr 21 '13 at 4:13
    
Asking about whether content of a particular book still holds true is too localised and not really useful here, however if you edit this question to focus more on the problem you describe in your final paragraph - a question on DDoS mitigation techniques may well be entirely on topic. –  Rory Alsop Apr 21 '13 at 9:36

As applicable as buying a book on Windows XP SP1. Current to the time, but so much has happened since then, even if you're still running Windows XP. –  Fiasco Labs Apr 21 '13 at 17:16
