Print vs eBook
Printed books retain the pleasure of holding a real book but printing on paper and
distributing books to readers involves many layers of costs and environmental
degradation that can be avoided with electronic distribution of information and
After two decades of experimentation with eBook formats and readers, we have
had the best results with Adobe PDF files as downloads. The only stipulation is
that the receiving device can store, read, and properly display PDF files.
Desktop computers offer luxurious accommodation - big screens, big keyboards,
and big storage capacity and are the best options for serious learning and work. Smart phones
with internet access, reading and writing capabilities are becoming the new
personal digital assistants. Several smart phones with larger, full color
screens will display a microscopic version of webpages and eBooks. We continue
to have misgivings about attempting to read books on small screens.
eBooks as Adobe PDF Files
PDF files are the standard for
electronic document distribution worldwide. Adobe has provide free downloads of
their PDF reader for many years. Most regular computer users already have
Adobe's Reader installed and the reader is integrated into Microsoft's internet
explorer. The program is updated regularly as a free service. Adobe PDF files
are compact and can be shared, viewed, and navigated by everyone. When you use
the Adobe Reader on a laptop or desktop computer you can click on a topic in the table of contents. In
some versions you can use bookmarks to jump thru the text. You can also use the
search (find) function to look for keywords or phrases. Our books allow you to
mark, copy, paste and print text.
Bigger Screens are Better
Screen size is the deciding factor when you attempt to read and understand the contents
of an eBook. A 10" tablet, laptop or better, a desktop computer are best suited
for meaningful reading and interaction. We hope that readers will study our books. To accomplish meaningful learning you
need a larger format display.
We know that people who attempt to read our webpages and books on smart phones cannot enjoy the full benefit of
our best efforts. They have difficulty understanding the rich information we
provide and often cannot handle transactions online. They only get a small
sample of what we offer. We use dual 25" monitors in our office workstations and
enjoy reading Web Pages and PDF files. To us, attempting to read
meaningful text on a smart phone or small tablet can become an exercise in frustration.
