Is this a Kosher site...

They say you don't have to give any details but it will not let you download until you have given your email address...

1) Why would anyone give all those absolutely free, when it sounds too good to be true it usually generates a query
2) How do they earn their expenses let alone wages
3) I wonder if they are selling the email address...

Can this be checked out please!!!!!

If some one had success in downloading and not being bombarded by spam emails please let us know....

They contain adverts so the advertisers probably fund the pdfs.

SpreadPyar -

1) I've downloaded quite a few of these books with no problems whatsoever.
2) As stated elsewhere - there is advertising throughout the PDF which no doubt pays for the books/service
3) Do what I did - use a fake e-mail address! The system doesn't care, it just wants an entry

Hope that helps!

Just use no.marketing@please.com as your email address will do nicely..................
They will know that you don't want to disclose your email address and also they know that this email address doesn't lead them anywhere i.e. not to waste their time to send you newsletters and promotions. They give you free books!

Thank you very much for sharing with us this valueable link. I have not downloaded any book yet but it seems it has quite desireable titles of books.

It doesn't have to be a real address....

In those occasions where it does need to be a valid one, use something like http://www.mailinator.com (also useful for freebies generally)

Hi, I downloaded some of these PDF's for my daughter who has just started Uni. Unfortunately, they will not open on my laptop. All other PDF's do so I don't understand why these won't.

Hi,

Remember if you or someone you know is going to uni, most text books can now be accessed for free through google or though university sources. This saves alot!!


I am currently studying a business and human resource management degree and i use tge cipd, acas and business link webites for background info and for lit reviews! This ends up better than text book theory and is mainly free if you sign up and create account
