To get the Doctorate Achievement and Trophy in Deus Ex: Human Revolution, you will need to scour each and every location in the game to find the 29 eBooks that will give you a Scholar Bonus of 200 XP when picked up. Note that these eBooks are different from all the other, numerous, eBooks scattered about the game, which offer no such rewards.
Listed below is each and every location for the 29 eBooks needed to find along with images of their exact location. Please be sure to note that some of the eBooks can be had much easier if you have chosen to equip Jensen with both the Hacking: Capture Level 5 and Punch through Wall Arm Augmentation.
