After you place your order, you will be taken to a confirmation page with links to download all available formats of your e-book. The download process will usually take between two seconds and two minutes, depending on the speed of your connection.

Your e-book download link(s) will also be repeated in your order confirmation email. If you have any trouble accessing your download link(s) from the order confirmation page, please check your confirmation email or log on to the Your Account page to access your e-book(s).

Note: Some older devices may not support every e-book format in every browser. For example, if you have a very old iOS device, you may need to download your ePub in the Safari browser instead of the Chrome browser. Please contact us at if you have any trouble downloading your e-book on your device.
