Good list! I have been recommending Web Application Hacker's Handbook to folks for a while.

My choice for best book of 2009 would be Bill Blunden's The Rootkit Arsenal. It's a weighty tome, and absolutely chock-filled with well-written explanations of some very low-level technical stuff. Excellent value for your money, and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 author makes it an enjoyable read.
