San Francisco, CA (April 27, 2016)—No Starch Press, arguably the most widely respected publisher of books for hackers, teams up with Humble Bundle to offer a pay-what-you-want collection of ebooks called the Humble Book Bundle: Hacking. The bundle includes a selection of the company’s finest—such as worldwide best seller Hacking: The Art of Exploitation; classics like Hacking the Xbox; and more recent best sellers like Automate the Boring Stuff with Python, Black Hat Python and Practical Malware Analysis. This bundle is a true bargain—valued at over US $350—and with Humble Bundle’s pay-what-you-want model, customers can pay whatever price they think is fair.
"Many people call themselves hackers, but few have the strong technical foundation needed to really push the envelope," says Bill Pollock, founder of No Starch Press. "True hackers never stop learning, never stop pushing boundaries. Our core mission is to produce the books that hackers really want and need, and we're not pulling any punches here. We've included several of our best sellers to make this bundle right for just about anyone."
