Some great free Electrical Engineering books

In this post we introduce some great free Electrical Engineering books. Although free sometime means low-quality, but as you will find the books in this list are written buy some of the most well known experts in their fields. This list is a good start, but we will try to add to this list as soon as we find or hear about other great free Electrical Engineering books. Of course if you know of a great free Electrical Engineering book, please send us an email and we will add it to the list. For each book we mention the book title, the latest edition publication year, the author/s name and affiliation and finally the table of content.
