    [SOLVED] Please tell me how to read this e-book

    I want to read this e-book "Thinking in C++" Volume-1 by Bruce Eckel. It is a free download here. I downloaded the zip file and when I extract it there are many-many folders inside but I don't know what to read. I was expecting it to be a pdf, but its not. If you have the time, please download it and tell me how do I read it. That would be great!

    Thank you.

    What format is it in? What's the file extension?

    Edit: I see. Those books are in HTML. Use your browser.

    index.html ?
    Or just click or any one of the html files - it will have links to the table of contents or other chapters.
