I've just finished The Art of Memory Forensics by the Volatility team, which was excellent. I'll be posting a review of it on FF shortly.

I'm currently reading L'Incroyable Histoire de Wheeler Burden by Selden Edwards, which is about an American guy who moves to Vienna and becomes a client of Sigmund Freud's.

What have you read recently that you enjoyed? What are you currently reading?

Good question, I was asked that recently while looking for a job.

IMHO, a better question would be, what are you writing that will be shared with and used to push the community forward?

Not customer reports, and not repetitive reporting ("…this person wrote this thing and it's good. End of review."), but what are you doing to add to the collective #DFIR knowledge base?

An interesting one! I'm currently looking at reviving my 'First Steps In Digital Forensics' project - I was going to write a book on the topic last year, but ended up writing a novel instead. Now that's finished, I might write another DF book, and it looks like there's a lot of interest in a "How to get started" style book.

Just recently finished "REPLAY The history of video games".

Its very well written and has come good insight to how other industries have benefited from the rise of video game technology. Also, as someone in their 40's, it takes me down memory lane for some of the early upright, PC, and console titles that flooded my youth.

I have a 3 hour commute everyday (1.5 hours each way) so I listen to Audible most of the time. The CDC book was really good! Currently I am listening to (almost done) Super Pumped The Battle for Uber by Mike Issac and it is pretty amazing. Where Wizards Stay Up Late by Katie Hafner and Matthew Lyon was also very good (deep dive into the creation of the internet). Bad Blood Secrets and Lies in a Silicon Valley Startup by John Carreyrou was by fair my favorite and is all about the fraud that was Theranos.

I've read and/or listened to 28 books so far this year.

Interesting that you say that…I recently revamped a writing project because of that very same thing. Rather than focusing on getting the most out of RegRipper, I've revised my project to cover Registry analysis more globally.

Now I'm reading The Human Bone Manual by White and Folkens, and I already feel like it's going to be a board book. The book is very fascinating because of the images and diverse opinions. It makes you think
