About e-books

The book files are in Adobe® Acrobat® format (.PDF files). You will need Acrobat Reader 6.0 or later to be able to read or print them.

All books are designed be to printed two-up on A4 or letter-sized paper, and will not require to be 'fitted to paper'.

The reading copies have one book page per Acrobat page. This works well for on-screen reading, but unless your printer driver does the right thing for two-up printing, you may find that the pages get too small when printed. The printing copies are already in two-up format. This is fine for printing, but may be less easy to read on-screen.
