You have all listed some great books here are some other additions to consider. I understand some of these are dated, but the information in them is still valuable. I would also add consideration for books on the operating system i.e. Windows Internals, Apple Training Series Books, Mac OSX Internals and Linux books are very helpful. And of course those that focus on Malware, Security, Hacking, Android, iOS, Sqlite and so forth.

Here are ones that I would recommend (my apologies for any typos or if I left an author out):

Android Forensics: Investigation, Analysis and Mobile Security for Google Android Andrew Hoog

iPhone Forensics: Recovering Evidence, Personal Data, and Corporate Assets Jonathan Zdziarski

Mac OS X, iPod, and iPhone Forensic Analysis DVD Toolkit Ryan Kubasiak, Sean Morrissey, Jesse Varsalone

iPhone and iOS Forensics: Investigation, Analysis, and Mobile Secuirty iPhone, iPad and iOS Devices Andrew Hoog and Katie Strzempka

EnCase Computer Forensics The Official EnCase Certified Examiner Study Guide Steve Bunting
Malware Forensics Field Guide for Linux Systems Cameron H. Malin, Eoghan Casey and James Aquilina

Malware Forensics Field Guide for Windows Systems Cameron Malin, Eoghan Casey, and james Aquilina.

Cyber Crime Investigations: Bridging the Gaps Between Security Professionals, Law Enforcement, and Prosecutors. Anthony Reyes, Richard Brittson, Kevin O'Shea, James Steele, Ben Jean, Thomas Ralph.

Happy eReading.

I, too, am honored to be on this list.

I posted a number of books that I have read over the years, each of which I would critique as good and informative reads. Rather than list them here, the list along with my brief critiques of each book is on the WinFE blog (winfe.wordpress.com/books/). The comments about each book are my opinions only. Very Happy
