Q: Where can I get your book?
A: Click here!
Q: Why is your book only available for Kindle?
A: We have decided to publish via Kindle because this format is compatible with a wide range of devices:
- Amazon Kindle devices (e.g., Fire, Paperwhite etc.)
- Tablets like the iPad, Android, and Windows 8 devices
- Smartphones (e.g., iPhone, Android, Windows etc.)
- Both Windows and Mac computers
- Your internet browser via the Kindle Cloud Reader
- For more info about the above devices (including downloads for the apps for these respective devices), click here.
Also, by publishing via Kindle we can keep the price down and give you instant access to our book. Hooray for affordable instant gratification! Plus, we like trees and don’t want to be responsible for them dying to bring you our book.
Q: I don’t have a Kindle device; does that mean I can’t read your book?
A: No, as long as you have access to the internet you can read our book. You can read it on any computer via the Kindle Cloud Reader. Or on your computer/laptop (Mac or PC). Or on your tablet/iPad. Or your smartphone. The possibilities are virtually endless. See here for instructions!
Q: Do I need to buy a device to read your book?
A: NO! You’re reading this page on a computer right? (if not, then you’re reading on a smartphone or tablet, which are also supported.) You can read Kindle books right in your browser without having to buy anything new. But it is the 21st century and you should probably get with the times and treat yourself to a Kindle.
