Over the last year I've been fortunate enough to assist several authors with some brand-new and really good information security books. I was asked to write the foreword for two of them and also got nice quote on the cover of another. These books are stellar and if you’re looking to learn the latest tricks-of-the-trade, especially in web application security, these are definitely worth picking up.
