Microsoft Offering Free Downloads of Technical Books

Microsoft partners looking for a little beach reading just got access to a treasure chest's worth.

Eric Ligman, formerly the Microsoft Partner Experience Lead and now a sales excellence program manager at Microsoft, this week posted links to the complete text of 64 books about Microsoft technical topics.

Ligman did this last summer, too, and says the posting led to 1 million downloads worldwide.

"As with the past collections, these eBooks are completely FREE, they are not time-bombed, there is no catch, and yes, please let your friends, family, colleagues, or anyone else that you think would benefit from these know that they are available here and to come download the ones they are interested in," Ligman wrote.

The eBook topics include Office and Office 365, SharePoint, SQL Server, System Center, Visual Studio, Web Development, Windows, Windows Azure and Windows Server.

Links to the free eBooks are available here.
