    By far the best EMV book on the market hands down. If you are working on EMV, stop and buy this book. EMV is a technical subject and this is a technical book. I have no idea why S. Gold even bothered to review the book. Of course it is a technical book. Of course the contents will be difficult to follow for those who do not have mathematical and programming background. EMV is technical subject that requires a significant mathematical and programming background. That is like buyin a book about math and then complaining because the book is about math. And card schemes??? Please, please do not write reviews if you have absolutely no idea about the subject matter. This book is part of Artech House Computer Security Series, that is a clue! This book is the only place where someone has put together most of the information about EMV. My thanks go out to the author Cristian Radu. By the way I bought four copies.

    This book is written for technical people. The overall tone is dull and pedantic. The contents will be difficult to follow for those who do not have mathematical or programming background.

    Anyone who has an overall understanding of the EMV specifications will have very little use for the material in this book. There is nothing of note with respect to specific card schemes.

    Business people can get much of the non-technical information in the book for free from other sources.
