I wanted to start learning about computer and network security and things related to that and I'm looking for a few good books to start reading.

I was looking for something more like a textbook or something like that.

Does anyone have any good recommendations?

Thanks in advance

The very first book I tell people to read to learn about computer security is "The Cuckoo's Egg" by Clifford Stoll.Â

It isn't going to teach you much that is particularly useful from a skillset perspective... but what it will do is show you the type of things that can happen, in a very easily readable way.
