What is an eBook?

An eBook is a book in electronic form, designed for reading on computers, smartphones, and e-readers (such as Kindle, Nook, Kobo, iPad, etc.).

Why are there two versions of the eBook? Which version do I want?

EBooks are formatted in two different ways for use on a variety of e-readers and software.

If you have an Amazon Kindle e-reader, (or if you install Amazon’s Kindle App for PC/MAC/smartphone) you will need to download the .mobi file marked “KINDLE download”.

For all other e-readers (Nook, Kobo, iPad, smartphones, etc., as well as all other PC/MAC e-reader software) download the .epub version.

The most popular e-book readers and their natively supported formats are shown below.

Reader  Native E-Book Formats
Amazon Kindle, Kindle Fire (color), Kindle Touch, Kindle Touch 3G  MOBI
Nook Simple Touch, Nook Tablet  EPUB
Apple iPad  EPUB

What if I don’t have an e-reader?

You can read this eBook on your computer using free software. Here are a few applications that we recommend:

How do I download my eBook?

Go to the book download page, decide which eBook version you want to download (see above), and click on the appropriate download button (KINDLE Download or EPUB Download). From there, follow the prompted steps to complete the download.

What if I get an error message when I open my eBook?

First things first, make sure that you have downloaded the appropriate software to read this eBook (see above).

Make sure that the eBook version you are downloading is compatible with the software you chose (.mobi for Kindle, .epub for all other software).

A common problem could be that some ‘interference’ or ‘corruption’ occurred while trying to download. If this is the case, delete the file you downloaded and try to re-download from scratch. You need to make sure that the first downloaded version is completely erased from your computer before attempting to re-download (for PC, check your ‘Temporary Internet Files’ [in C drive] to make sure a copy is not stored there). If difficulties persist, you may need to reboot your computer and re-download.

Please contact us for further assistance if you are still unsuccessful in downloading this eBook after attempting the steps above.
