Reminder: Springer has released a lot of digital textbooks for free in the last few months, and their special offer is ending on July 31st. There is no need to sign up to download the PDF and ePub files.
This lovely page has the full list of available titles: https://hnarayanan.github.io/springer-books/
I'm aware, but they still have a disgustingly big monopoly on knowledge that's usually hidden behind a paywall
+ they also do that fun thing where you make someone pay to get their study published in a journal and then take money from anyone who wants to read it without authors ever seeing any of that
@miramarco for any nerds reading this and use R
Code to access and download all of them
looks like someone made a Google Drive repo of them!
@miramarco Thank you for this. I always enjoy a new textbook on a topic that I haven't explored before.
@miramarco Thanks for the tip! I noticed that they also released textbooks in German, so I hacked together a small script to convert all lists from the blogpost into Markdown: https://github.com/7adietri/springer-nature-free-textbooks
