No Starch Press Partners with Humble Bundle for the

Humble Book Bundle: Hacking 2.0


Readers pay what they want for a selection of

best-selling hacking and security books


San Francisco, CA (May 27, 2019)—No Starch Press, one of the world’s most highly-regarded publishers of books for hackers, is partnering with Humble Bundle to offer a selection of the company’s finest hacking and computer security books. Humble Bundle: Hacking 2.0 continues a collaboration that has brought in millions of dollars for the company while raising well over $1.5 million for charity.


The Hacking 2.0 Humble Bundle benefits two charities: the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) and The No Starch Press Foundation.


Created by No Starch Press founder Bill Pollock to support and grow the worldwide hacking and STEM community, The No Starch Press Foundation supports access to STEM programs in low-income neighborhoods, offers financial support to independent STEM initiatives like robotics clubs and research projects, and provides hackerspaces and makerspaces with learning resources. Pollock has donated over $800,000 to the foundation already, and its growing board of advisors includes many well-known leaders in the hacking community.


“This is a bit of a coming out party for the Foundation,” Pollock said. In addition to receiving funds from our next Humble Bundle, the Foundation will begin receiving grant requests next week. Grant awards will be announced at Defcon.”


No Starch Press is also excited to continue their support of the Electronic Frontier Foundation’s important work. Dedicated to defending civil liberties online, EFF defends free speech, fights illegal surveillance, advocates for users and innovators, and supports freedom-enhancing technologies.


Like all Humble Bundle promotions, customers choose how much of their money goes to the publisher, Humble Bundle, and the benefiting nonprofits.


This ebook bundle—valued at $475—includes best-sellers like Linux Basics for Hackers, Serious Cryptography, and the wildly popular PoC || GTFO series.


With Humble Bundle's pay-what-you-want model, readers pay whatever price they think is fair for each bundle, making it a true bargain.
