my favorite title from the list: "Of Cigarettes, High Heels, and Other Interesting Things" ( It's actually a book about semiotics ). Last fiddled with by tServo on 20200508 at 12:51

Serge Lang's Algebra appears to be mistakenly on the list, it still shows up as nonfree.

Indeed! Thanks. I just passed this onto some GoB officials.
Perhaps Ken could do his curation thing again on this subject domain? (Please.) It would be great to be able to point to a list of highquality materials and systems available to anyone motivated to learn. Free textbooks and other training materials and environments, as well as the free generalpurpose compute we recently discovered is available. Colab and Kaggle, of course, but there are others available with appropriate arrangements.

A remarkable collection!
Thanks for the news! Shared at work, people are ecstatic. P.S. Yes, there are a few more books in it that are not free, but "nearly all" are.

Apparently a few nonfree text books are in this list, still trying to understand if I can push those throughout Uni VPN connection. Will let you know once I get a clear response.

By going to the Springer site, one can download an .xlsx file that might be handier than the .pdf file. (And LibreOffice has no problems reading that file format.)
The download link is "Free English textbook titles (all disciplines)" https://resourcecms.springernature.com/springercms/rest/v1/content/17858272/data/v5 Jacob

Sometimes described as "Globally correct but locally wrong." While generally not considered an introductory text, it is said that one can learn a great deal from it by correcting the mistakes in it. One of the most (in)famous exercises in any graduatelevel text book appears in the chapter on Homology: Quote:
