It seems that Eric Ligman, who plies his trade as Microsoft’s Senior Sales Excellence Manager, has once again woken up filled with the spirit of giving. After previously being overcome with a bout of generosity that led to over 2 million eBooks being downloaded for free over a two week spell, the Sales Excellence Manager is once again putting up his collection of free Microsoft eBooks, user-guides, deployment guides, step-by-step guides, and everything in between to be freely downloaded.

If well written, insightful and cleverly constructed guides and tutorials in the form of eBooks are your thing then the name Eric Ligman may not be alien to you. The technical enthusiast and author has been putting together guides for numerous years now and has written close to 500 thus far. One of the great things about the guides that Ligman regularly authors is that they have mass appeal to hardcore technology enthusiasts, the regular stay at home user, as well as those interested in the art of business and everyone in between. It really is a diverse set of literature for all spectrums of individuals.
