There are a number of books on this article that have links to file sharing sites and I would question if they are in fact "free". I'm all on for sharing books but only when they have the consent and permission of the author. This is usually stated on the page where they are linked from.

Very thank for these books

This is a greater help you bring us in developing countries

Don't forget my book on data science 2.0 / automated data science, still under construction, but you can check all articles starred in red here: they'll be in my book, and of course they are free for everyone to read.
