Linked Data: Evolving the Web into a Global Data Space , by Tom Heath and Christian Bizer, provides both a lucid rationale for why Linked Data is important to the evolution of the web, and a practical how-to guide for structuring and publishing linked data. Besides discussing the principles of Linked Data the book surveys the Web of Data that has emerged through the application of these principles, and describes deployed Linked Data applications and their architecture.

The book is available in hard copy, but the authors have also created an unabridged HTML version, which is available free of charge at http://linkeddatabook.com/book.
