          Leaving ~99 more books [in German] still to find…

      • Legend, thank you!

        • incl 9 books missing fr the 7.8GB one, &

        • req. much more space (but it incl's ePub
          (duplicates), Not incl'd in smaller one)

  • Awesome collection of text books. thanks

    FWIW All of Statistics linked in the OP is arguably the best text on stats there is.

    ps Holy, this is really good list of books.

    Can we get a torrent link that doesn't ask for payment to download the actual .torrent file?

    • That would be lovely.

      I can only guess originally the file was just there, but once it hit some quota, it became paid.

      edit: Yeah, "The hosting period for this file has now expired, only premium users can download it."
