Throughout the year I try to share resources and information with you that I think will be helpful for you. Often times these resources will include links to free eBooks that we make available on a variety of topics. Today, I thought I would post a large collection of eBooks for you here so that you can find them in one place and consume them as you see fit. Also, if you find this list helpful, please share it with your peers and colleagues so that they too can benefit from these resources.
Due to the incredible popularity of this post, I’ve added a second post on even MORE free Microsoft eBooks and Resource Kits available for you, in case you are interested.
I hope you find these resources to be helpful in learning about and using the various solutions and technologies referenced. I’d love to hear your feedback on these, so please feel free to give me your input.
Did you find this information helpful? If so, you may want to make sure you are utilizing all of the areas I share information online, such as:
By the way, another great place to find free books is the E-Book Gallery for Microsoft Technologies on the TechNet Wiki. You can also find their Twitter feed (@MSFreeEBooks) in the Products section of the Microsoft Partner Info Mobile App.
Thanks again for being a reader of my blog!

@ Daniel, Praveen, Nikanth, Ganesh, and All GBT - I appreciate the feedback on the collection and thank you for sharing it. I am glad these resources are helpful for you.
Thank you very much Eric... :)
Thanks for sharing, however when I try any links, I'm getting the following error message:
"404. That’s an error.
The requested URL /external_content/untrusted_dlcp/download.microsoft.com/en//download/1/2/F/12F1FF78-73E1-4714-9A08-6A76FA3DA769/656949ebook.pdf was not found on this server. That’s all we know."
Not sure if anybody else is experiencing this issue, I have tried different browser but no luck
Hi Eric, very useful stuff, thank you.
Hey Eric, Thanks for this wonderful collection.
Really wonderful Technical collections
Thanks you so much... this is very helpful material
@ Mustafa - There have been hundreds of thousands of successful downloads of the eBooks already since I put up my posts, so I do not believe this is a common experience for people. I do have a couple of thoughts though:
1) Have you tried right-clicking on the eBook you want to download and selecting "Save Target As" to save the eBook download directly instead of clicking the link to open the eBook link first?
2) It also sounds like you may be behind a firewall that is blocking "un-recognized sites," which is blocking the download from beginning. If this is the case, you may want to try again from another location.
I hope that one of these two options helps you get the eBooks you are looking for.
@ Navaneetharkishan, Awanish, Rao, and Shar - Thanks for sharing your feedback on the eBooks post and I'm very happy to hear that you found this post useful.
Thanks for reading my blog,
Thank you! Very nice set of links!
Awesome resource thanks!
Thanks a ton!
This is such a find! Thanks for sharing this great info.
A thing of beauty! Thanks!
Thanks for the great share. Are there anymore resources for Server 2012 (Server 8)? The move setting up windows servers a private cloud instead of a few monolith systems is a great move.
