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.

Many folks are wondering if htere are other formats of these books available. Any reason you are only linking to the PDF version when Technet has three formats available?
Thanksso mucho Eric for this material!!
@ William - Thanks for the feedback. Originaly I only had PDF because the first eBooks I included when I started creating it were PDF only. When I started adding others that had additional formats, I just kept it to PDF for consistency. Since I heard the feedback about other formats, I have updated the post with .DOC, .XPS, .EPUB. .MOBI formats where available.
@ Fran - Nope, no catch. Enjoy the eBooks. :-)
Thanks Eric, looks like some great material. - Just noticed the Introducing Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 PDF link points to the XPS file.
