Free Books

The basic idea behind Free Books is the same as for free software, that books (especially text books) shouldn't be lost due to naff contract problems. We should therefore support them.

We know of the following free books:

  1. Engines of Creation - K. Eric Drexler Chapter 14
  2. Free as in Freedom - a biography of Richard M. Stallman by Sam Williams (2002)
  3. Free Software Free Society: Selected Essays of Richard M. Stallman
  4. Gnu Make manual and also Recursive Make Considered Harmful
  5. Hypertext Publishing and the Evolution of Knowledge

There are also a number of books at http://en.flossmanuals.net/ and http://www.gnu.org/manual/manual.html.
