$8 is needed to get you into the next tier of books, which includes Java 11 Cookbook, Functional Python Programming and Advanced Go Programming in 7 Days.

Our recommendation is to just go all in, with $15 from your credit card going towards the whole shebang. The twelve books in the final tier include Software Architect’s Handbook, Java 11 in 7 Days and Mastering Go amongst others.
