Along with a handfull of PDF's, and IPTV shows, my biggest resource of info is the almighty internet.  But sometimes you just have to get the real deal...

What ACTUAL books do you have on your bookshelf?

My bookshelf.

THE ESSENTIAL GUIDE TO TELECOMMUNICATIONS (4th ED.)

LINUX...FOR DUMMIES (8th ed.)

THE ARRL HANDBOOK FOR RADIO AMATEURS (2001)

Not very impressive, but just wondering what some of you guys have.

I have quite a few The Complete Reference books, mainly things like Perl, C++, UNIX and so on, other stuff like a first edition of Computer Organization and Architecture by William Stallings (VAX FTW), I have a load of the Black Book series. Any country I've been too I have the Lonely Planet Guide Book, well if they make one. Other then that I have quite a few political books and a few photography books.

That's awesome, it looks like the shelf at the bookstore.  I'm cheap, I'll see a book, want it...then decide that I could probably find the information on the internet (which is free) and decide not to buy it.  But I'm really happy with my last purchase, the telecommunications book, it took a lot of things I already understood, and put it together to form the big picture.  Also, the dummies books are pretty good to, when your starting out, it's good to get the gist of things before you get into the nitty gritty of something.

well it used to be my favorite, so yeah its a great introduction book :)

it gives an explanation on what the difference is between certain virus types , trojans, scams , etc (including a history list of legendary viruses) , some info on certain (old legendary) tools & trojans like subseven, etc

even a list of mailadresses etc u can use to recieve websites you cant reach orthat are blocked (lets say you're in china , cant reach a certain site , just mail the url to the email adress and you'll get the page mailed back) and a bunch of other neat stuff including some phone phreaking story's (it also covers social engeneering etc)

tho 1 big advice ! get the first edition ! (white grey cover with black fingerprints)  i used to have it and it has a lot of cool stuff they left out in the second edition (the black one you see with white fingerprints)

so : if you can find it  ....

you want this :
