FREE BOOKS!!!!

Post by thoreau »

Springer has made a bunch of books available for free download!

I didn't realize it was Christmas already. 2020 is going by faster than I expected.

So for those of us with little experience beyond just buying-shit-on-Kindle and finding that PDFs of Pathfinder are a real PITA relative to a paper book where you can easily flip through looking for the page you need, what are the advantages/disadvantages of getting EPUB vs PDF?

I note that Physics and Astronomy are the same category of study.
Hey thoreau, have you read "Cosmology for the Curious"?

To add to Thoreau's post: The life and adventures of Nat Love.

If you don't know who Nat Love is he is worth a google.
