Good reference for Computer forensics basic
A well organized book begins with clear and precise explanation on the basic of computer forensics.
Chapter 3 provides good technical information on storage media. And it goes on forensics in Windows and Unix from Chapter 8 throught Chapter 11.
The section I like the most is Appendix A, which gives you comprehensive guidelines in dealing with incident response (a good sell to senior management).
It is not a technical reference book but it is one of those "have-to-have" introduction books for anyone who is new in this field.

An Intro to Computer Forensics.
Computer Forensics: Incident Responce Essentials
By Warren G. Kruse and Jay G. Heiser.
It is perhaps an unfortunate truth, but in todays world
even small to mid-sized businesses need to understand the
risks they face with computer crime. All businesses need
to be able to respond in a proper and effective fashion
according to their needs and situation.
Computer Forensics: Incident Response Essentials is an excellent
introduction to the tools, techniques and methodologies to
use in the event that your business become a victim of computer
crime or lesser, non criminal computer misuse. All businesses
large or small should have a structured plan in place to handle
such an emergency and this book is a good first read if your
company does not.
As an NT Administrator I may not sleep as well after reading the
section on NT Streams but at least I now know what to look for.
Many tools and there uses are mentioned in the book and in many
cases including NT Streams, the tool is even free. The basic
formula to conduct an incident response or investigation into
a computer breach is covered. After all, if you can't find out
what happened, how are you going to prevent it from happening

Excellent coverage, recommended reading.
The authors did a great job covering forensics and response. Very thorough and easy to follow. I read this book in two evenings and use it as a reference as I audit my networks. Recommended.
