    This forum does not automatically send notices of new content. So if, for example, you would like to be notified by mail when Steve posts an update to his blog (or of any other specific activity anywhere else), you need to tell the system what to “Watch” for you. Please checkout the “Tips & Tricks” page for details about that... and other tips!

I am a huge fan of your podcast, security now. unfortunately, I am temporarily incarcerated for the next year. I have had my family send me the transcript of the podcast weekly, and it has been a huge help to keep me current.

We don't have internet in prison, but we have a paid email system provided by a company called JPay (don't get me started on them). What we need most are books, because they easiest to get in prison.

I wanted to know if Steve (or Leo) can recommend any recent books from the security world (or the greater tech world) which would be helpful to myself and other people in my position. You would be amazed how many tech oriented people end up here, completely cut off from the internet.

Thanks you so much for your help, and for the service you guys provide for everyone out there who values privacy and security!
