there was famous and pupolar publishers out there like John Wiley, Mac-Graw Hill , for dummies, O'Reilly and many others .
about 6 hours I was in exhibition and I can't find my own book "Shellcoder's Hanbook Second Edition" and "MCTS .net Application development" ...
but, I bought some of my owns which you can see them here :
here you can see which books I bought in exhibition, Programming Python is one of the best python books ever I've seen, a book with fully of great materials on Python programming whether topics are related to Application development, GUI development, Web Programming, Sys programming and many other things ...
you can see materilas which is covered by "Programming Python" , a book from famous publisher O'Reilly

another books which I'm interesting in is "Professional Linux Programming" from Wrox .
this books is about professional development under Linux OS and is one of the best rated books that you can see ever, in this books you can see even topics that covered Kernel Module Programming, sounds like Loadable Kernel Module Rootkit and bad guys interested in this book surely .
here you can see topics which is covered in this treasure :
- How to use tools such as compilers, debuggers, and Software Configuration Management
Ways to interact with Linux systems through network interfaces, graphical user environments, and LAMP stacks
Techniques for building software for different compatible platforms
Tips for utilizing the GNU automated build for faster development
Steps for using emulation and virtualization technologies for kernel development and application testing
How to write your own GNOME software and powerful web applications
- Perform ethical hacks without compromising a system
- Combat denial of service and WEP attacks
- Understand how invaders think
- Recognize the effects of different hacks
- Protect against war drivers and rogue devices
the other book which is uniquly is "The web application hacker's hanbook, discovering and exploiting security holes" , sounds like interesting hom !?, this one is dedicated to one who is interested in Web Hacking and web vulnerability discovering, this is also a good book with lots of updated materials which you can see here,
This book is a practical guide to discovering and exploiting security flaws in web applications. The authors explain each category of vulnerability using real-world examples, screen shots and code extracts. The book is extremely practical in focus, and describes in detail the steps involved in detecting and exploiting each kind of security weakness found within a variety of applications such as online banking, e-commerce and other web applications.
The topics covered include bypassing login mechanisms, injecting code, exploiting logic flaws and compromising other users. Because every web application is different, attacking them entails bringing to bear various general principles, techniques and experience in an imaginative way. The most successful hackers go beyond this, and find ways to automate their bespoke attacks. This handbook describes a proven methodology that combines the virtues of human intelligence and computerized brute force, often with devastating results.The authors are professional penetration testers who have been involved in web application security for nearly a decade. They have presented training courses at the Black Hat security conferences throughout the world. Under the alias "PortSwigger", Dafydd developed the popular Burp Suite of web application hack tools.
and lastly one of the books which I think is hard to understand is "CCIE Professional Development, Routing TCP/IP " , this one as you surely know is related to cisco networking stuff and is a cisco press book which I interested in, you can see the covered materials here,
that's all, if you want to buys one of them and need some description about the materilas Quality feel free to contact me or comment it out here .
hope to like these information .
