There is also a book by Lance Spitzner called "Honeypots Tracking
Hackers" that is worth a read.

I have read the other two previously suggested books also, and they
are worth getting. I personally would place them in the following order

1. Know Your Enemy
2. Virtual Honeypots
3. Honeypots Tracking Hackers
