A couple
Numerous books come to mind to further suggest.  Spam Nation by Brian Krebs highlights the history of the pharma-spam industry.  And a while ago I reviewed iOS Application Security by Peter Thiel -- which is a decent reference book.

I think you mean David Thiel.  I'll refrain from posting my opinion on Peter Thiel.

Incorporating a Prevention Mindset into Threat Detection and Response
Threat detection and response systems, by definition, are reactive because they have to wait for damage to be done before finding the attack. With a prevention-mindset, security teams can proactively anticipate the attacker's next move, rather than reacting to specific threats or trying to detect the latest techniques in real-time. The report covers areas enterprises should focus on: What positive response looks like. Improving security hygiene. Combining preventive actions with red team efforts.
