Amber Jain’s list of *free* books available online for free

Quoting Stewart Brand:

Information wants to be free

I guess after reading the preceding quote, the intent of this blog post is clear.

I wrote a related blog-post sometime back: Links to *free* legal ‘readable stuff’ online.. This post is an extension of the idea behind that post.
I’ll post links to books (in no particular order) that are available online for free here. I’ll update this list whenever possible. If there are similar links/resources that your know of, post them in comments:

0. The C Book, second edition (by Mike Banahan, Declan Brady and Mark Doran)
This was originally published by Addison Wesley in 1991. This book is no longer in print though it can be read online for free.

1. Handbook of Applied Cryptography – fifth printing (by Alfred J. Menezes, Paul C. van Oorschot and Scott A. Vanstone)
Handbook of Applied Cryptography
