    Basics

    If you are looking to start a career in the security space, I would recommend this as one of the starter books. The authors does a very good job of introducing the topic of forensic computing. There isn't much that is too deep in this book and I would hesitate to recommend it to experienced security forensic people but for those just entering the field it is very good.
