Michael prided himself on being unreasonable, and only in the later years of life did he mellow sufficiently to occasionally refrain from debate.

Michael Stern Hart, best known for his invention of eBooks and as founder of  Project Gutenberg, died Tuesday. He was 64.

In honor of his legacy, download a free book from Project Gutenberg and give it a read. They are over 36,000 available in  60 different languages. 

Obituaries via Project Gutenberg, the Telegraph, the Guardian, Ars Technica and a nice thread on Hacker News with anecdotes from those that knew him.
