Research papers, specialized publications, mailing lists, blogs, conference talks; some FOSS projects, their architecture, design and security track records (bugs, bug classes, bug fixes, mitigation/prevention measures, policies, timelines, etc), some books about exploitation (may give you some tips about defense) or security of something particular (e.g. web browsers security); projects like PaX and Grsecurity, Openwall Linux, Hardened Gentoo and OpenBSD.

Why do you exclude this book from that huge list? It seems to me that the entire list had all the problems you said this book had.

I'm not framing a trick question, by the way. I'm not a security expert.

OTOH, I do know enough to know that reading this book isn't going to turn me into one.

Why? Obviously, because one just can't find the needed information in this book. Of course the internet is full of "misleading, obsolete, overly brief" content, but the good stuff is also there.
