    One thought on “Digital Evidence and Computer Crime: Forensic Science, Computers and the Internet”

    1. Good reference, a bit dated. Hard to concentrate at times when author talks about Netscape Navigator or ICQ Profile pages as an example of commonly used browser and social networking site.

    2. The book I read to research this post was Digital Evidence & Computer Crime by Eoghan Casey et al which is an excellent book that I bought from kindle. If you are reading this post on either shelfari or I have a computing blog at scratbag & a technology blog at scratbagroberts where there are various other book reviews on digital forensics along with other stuff. I wish I could give this book 6 stars on both of the book review sites but obviously 5 is the maximum. I really enjoyed readi [...]

    3. The author does a great job in explaining things, even ten year old's would understand. The thing that bothers me is the lack of practical examples, other than that its a good theoretical intro into digital forensics.

    4. Actually in the time it was written this probably was a very current book. Perhaps it's been updated, but some of the items talked about in this book probably are not even known to young people.

    5. Basics in this book are excellent. The history in this book is excellent. The absence of Windows 7 and 8 is what I really needed and it was missed.
