Paolo Maffezzoli created a new wiki doc that lists free eBooks from Microsoft that are of interest for system administrators. He also added eBooks about VMware and Cisco to our general list of free admin eBooks.

Michael Pietroforte

Michael Pietroforte is the founder and editor of 4sysops. He is a Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) with more than 30 years of experience in IT management and system administration.

Many of the free Microsoft books are already in our general list. The main advantage of this new wiki doc is that it contains the direct links to the different eBook formats (PDF, Office, Mobi (Kindle), ePub). The list is based on a bigger collection that Microsoft' Eric Ligman created a while back.

Below are the books with direct links that Paolo added to the general list of free admin books. If you know a free eBook, please add it to the list or post a comment below. Please note that marketing papers with a couple of pages don't count as eBooks even if they have been in published as PDF.
