I’m confused

Entire PDF version of Mac OSX Leopard, as opposed to the chapter by chapter option?

It would be nice to download the entire book as a PDF instead of the chapter by chapter option... I'd like a copy to keep on my MacBook hard drive so I wouldn't have to carry it around all the time... Come on. Please?

  • Hello Carbon,

    While it's our goal to provide all our books in PDF format, we also want our authors to agree that it's a good thing, and in some cases, such as this one, they're concerned that piracy will undercut their sales. I'll take your vote as yet another in favor of convenience and mobility and pass it on.

    Thanks for communicating with us.

  • I’m waiting for a PDF version.
    yes, I vote for it, good. Because not releasing it in PDF form does not stop piracy... That's kind of naive. I could (in theory without condoning suck behavior) buy the hard copy book then easily scan the entire book using very available high speed scanners at many copy shops, then save it as a PDF and post it all over the web, give to friends, etc etc. I could sell it to 4 friends for 10 bucks a piece, then they get a deal and I make my money back. I'm sure someone already has done this, but allowing people to choose to buy it, well... I'd buy it before I started doing searches for a free illegal copy, if I was given the chance. If you can legally download a movie, music, television, even novels... why not a computer manual? Here's to hope that next time I check your site there's a nice PDF lownload for me to purchase. Thanks.
