Last Friday I bought interesting book about security in very good price: three digital formats (epub, mobi, pdf) for 0.00 USD. Delivered from aPress store to my computer.

An I was very happy. But just only for one hour. I twitted about my hapiness and got message from aPress {TWITTER} that this is not the and and I can extend my hapiness… buying more book and still spending 0.00 USD. I cannot keep this information just for my (it’s not under NDA) especially that book came form different sections of ICT world.

All books are a little connected with thin-security line, but topics are different. This series called ApressOpen and full list available here.
