Last year, Humble Bundle teamed up with the great tech publisher, No Starch Press, to offer deeply discounted hacking ebooks for as little as one dollar with the Hacking 101 By No Starch Press Humble Bundle of ebooks. This year, on Giving Tuesday, No Starch Press has a new Hacking Book Bundle. The regular cost for the ebooks is more than $800 but you can get all of these ebooks for thirty dollars or just a few of the ebooks for as little as one dollar.
When Can I Get This Deal?
Humble Bundle cycles through deals like this on a regular basis and this one is available for the next 20 days (December 19th) and since these are e-books, you don’t need to worry about them selling out.

Support a Charity
How much of your purchase price goes to charity? You decide! For this bundle you can divvy up your payment between the publisher and the charities, The No Starch Press Foundation and Let’s Encrypt. If you like, you can adjust donation amounts by clicking on the “Adjust Donation” drop-down on the right side of the page.
How Does This Work?
If you’re not familiar with Humble Bundle, you may be skeptical about this deal so let me explain how this works. According to the Humble Bundle website, “Humble Bundle sells games, ebooks, software, and other digital content. Our mission is to support charity while providing awesome content to customers at great prices. We launched in 2010 with a single two-week Humble Indie Bundle, but we have humbly grown into a store full of games and bundles, a subscription service, a game publisher, and more.”
Between The Hacks has frequently recommended cybersecurity-based Humble Bundles to our readers and we like these deals so much that Between The Hacks has become an official Humble Partner.
If you make a purchase from the link below, a part of your purchase can go to the upkeep of this blog. However, as stated earlier, you decide where your money goes. Just move the donation sliders under “Adjust Donation” to donate more or less to the publisher, the charities and Between The Hacks.
A huge thank you to all of you who make this blog possible!
