    These are books that our memory editing experts here at MMOwned suggests that you read if you want to get into memory editing/programming/reversing.

    Also, it doesn't take the "object orientated programming first" approach, which is quite refreshing.
    Otherwise, it's well structured, goes into detail, gives background information, points out the differences with C and so on

    Very nice. I just bought the Reversing book and am reading it now. No doubt it has already taught me a lot about reading ASM.

    Windows internals has a new edition coming out in a few weeks that'll cover server '08 and vista if you're thinking of buying it you might want to wait. Also - has anyone seen anything good on driver programming?

    The Reversing book is quite good, as is the Windows Internals book.

    I also have the IDA book and it's okay.

    As for the rest of it... too C++ heavy :P
    Don't believe everything you think.

    A good resource for books is Scribd

    i.e. C++ =
    C++ Primer Plus (5th Edition)
    or C# =
    C# in a nutshell by O'Reilly Media
    or ASM =
    Assembly Language Programming
    or Game Development (DirectX 2d/3d etc)
    XNA Game development for PC, Xbox and Zune
    It allows you to read the books online or download them in the format of your choice.

    Just bought 3 of these. Also considering picking up a legit license of IDA Pro. Thank you for the recommendations.

    Ok, honestly... do NOT buy the C++ Primer.

    I bought it following these recommendations and already regretted it after a day or two...

    It is badly structured and neither a book for the absolut beginner nor any advanced reading. The first function is defined on page 225. Up to that point a lot of functions are used, even the first 'class' written, without defining a single function... In fact: the Sales_item class used in the first chapter is not explained until chapter 14 (page 505+).
    Because of this weird structure, there are a lot of vague explanations about what a class is, what inheritance is etc. with a friendly reference "read more about this in 300 pages".

    If you want a proper order of things you should read the book something like this:
    Code:
    Chapter 1
    Chapter 2
    chapter 6
    half of chapter 7
    chapter 3,4,5
    chapter 12
    and so on......
    All in all its a very bad beginners book. It might be ok as a reference book if you already know some c++ but don't expect to find everything you are looking for. There are some advanced topics like custom allocator classes but other things are left out.



    The only book i can recommend so far is "Professional C++" by Nicholas A. Solter and Scott J. Kleper ISBN 0-7645-7484-1.
    It is a bit more advanced, but there are very nice things about style of code etc. in there. Worth a look if you already know some c++ (or c!) (there is a pdf copy of this book somewhere on the web ).

    EDIT: I don't know where i've gotten this from, but somewhere on the web there is a collection of "132 C and C++ ebooks". This collections contains both the C++ Primer (4th ed.) and Professional C++ (2005) as well as a lot of trash and maybe a few more good books?!

    I torrented a massive zip of ~1100 computer books and it had a LOT of useful e-books in it, mostly consisting of chm'd books. Don't have the .torrent file anymore, but I would search it up on TBP.
