I'm enjoying a hard copy of David Pogue's fab 'MacOS X Lion' missing manual -- Thanks so much to David for a new piece of genius! -- and was hoping to get a portable, 'e' version of it w/o having to buy it anew...
--I did realise that the O'Reilly site offered a 'print+e' combo at a discount but, living in London UK, I was a bit worried about delivery so got my print copy via amazon.co.uk, who did not offer the combo, I think...
--same situation with my 'iPad2 - the missing manual' (got the print version and was hoping to get an e-version to carry around on all my devices, w/o having to start from square one...)
So, my question, please, would be:
What's my best course at this stage to get e-copies of my beloved O'Reilly books?...
Thank you very much,
You guys rock!
Thank you for the very kind comments - they are much appreciated.
And we do have a way for you to get the ebooks of the print books you already own for just a small extra cost - roughly the same as the difference between the print book cost and the print/ebook bundle.
Open an account on http://oreilly.com, if you don't have one already, via the "Your Account" button on the top right of the web page. Then go to "Register Print Books" & register Mac OS X Lion & iPad2 Missing Manuals. Then under "Your Products" you'll be offered the opportunity to upgrade to the Ebook. This will then get you access to the ebooks in all of the available formats, DRM-free and with lifetime updates.
I hope that this information helps. Any further questions please let us know.
awesome -- will do!
Thanks so much for the immediate response Simon, I'm glad I asked.
you guys keep up the fab work -- to add to the praise, I've browsed seriously through most other guidebooks for the same hard or softwares over the years and always found the 'missing manuals' far, far above (and ahead) of the competition.
--oh, and I'm a (science) editor myself btw, so I know how hard it is to find the perfect balance in accessibility, completeness and accuracy -- and timeliness!
--smthg I found particularly impressive were the October 2011 date stamps in some 'Lion-the-missing-m' Display items: with a release date of 21st Oct, if I'm not mistaken, that's a pretty amazing production turn-around time if one asks me!...
