MAYNOT BE REALLY: Free Book on HTML 5 game programming and another on animation

Earlier today I wrote the following entry (with links included, now removed)

Sweet free book on HTML 5 game programming!  If you are patient, Addison-Wesley tries to get you buy a subscription to get the “fast” download.  They make you wait for 25 seconds and then you do a “slow” download.  Not too bad.


I have only done a quick review, but it looks ok, as in I didn’t check out the code and content deeply.

I then tried the following download and had to wait 5 min 45 seconds for the slow download, so it appears that the slow download:


Take a look, the price is right, it’s FREE!

Two of my readers commented that the URLs that I gave may have been uploads without the permission of the author or publisher.  Now I like free stuff as well as any websurfer and I need HTML 5 game programming knowledge, but I also want to respect the author’s right to compensation.


Thank you JM and Greg Duncan for pointing this out!

    I'm not sure it's "really" free…Sounds too good to be true !…/ref=sr_1_1

    I agree with JM… Are you really sure this is legally free?

    "Addison-Wesley" isn't trying to get you to buy a faster download, it's the filepost site that is…

    If you search for that book there's a number of copies around the web, all on torrent, etc sites.
