Practical Malware Analysis – Another Hit From No Starch Press
Malware analysis is an obsession for me. So when I heard that No Starch Press was coming out with a new book called Practical Malware Analysis (also available at Amazon), I had to pick it up. Having read several No Starch Press books, I was confident that the content of the book was going to be good. Once again, No Starch Press did not let me down.

From there, the book consists of six major parts, with each comprised of three to four chapters. The huge bonuses of this book in my eyes are the hands-on labs at the end of each chapter. These labs help solidify the concepts that appear within the chapter.
