Very interesting compilation published here, with a strong machine learning flavor (maybe machine learning book authors - usually academics - are more prone to making their books available for free). Many are O'Reilly books freely available. Here we display those most relevant to data science. I haven't checked all the sources, but they seem legit. If you find some issue, let us know in the comment section below. Note that at DSC, we also have our free books:

There are several sections in the listing in question:

  1. Data Science Overviews (4 books)
  2. Data Scientists Interviews (2 books)

I also made a list with comments to each of free and non-free books. You can check them out on my website

I am the author of this list, and it was originally published on LearnDataSci

Many more books are available for free but you need to provide your email address to download a copy. Here's another one: The Field Guide to Data Science, by Booz Allen Hamilton. You can also check data science classes taught in some colleges, sometimes it lists a data science book that you can download for free. Not all these books are created equal, many consist of recycled material with a new label. If you want something really new, original, not recycled, core data science, and modern, buy my book
