Amazon has a review. Google returns links to other reviews, as well as Synopsis entries.

HTH,

Thank you. I was really looking for opinions from people on this site who are active in the field.

I know the author and have attended his training classes. Haven't read the book yet, but his class was awesome and very informative.

tmbstone,

This book is a nice place to start. I trained under one of the authors 'Neil Broom' and his knowledge and experience are well reflected in this book. The book will give you a first hand understanding of the industry from an insiders view.

Hope this helps

I have read most of this book. It didn't impress me at all. It's a surface-level book with a lot of wasted space, maybe if you want to skim it in a bookstore ...

My book recommendation certainly has to go to "Real Digital Forensics" by Keith Jones. It's quite new, and the most comprehensive that I've seen. Hopefully I'll get a chance to sit down and write a full review on it.
