Steal this e-Book!

This is an irreverent collection of articles and letters about electronic publishing and electronic rights that you are invited steal... legally!

"I think you'll enjoy it, and benefit from it," wrote Fred Showker, editor of the Design, Typography & Graphics newsletter.

As reviewed by Molly Martin for eBookWeb, "Articles included in the work are presented in professional manner by professional experts in the field. These are not cutesy little feel good articles based on unfounded thought about what ePublishing and eBooks are all about. Rather the materials gathered by editor Snow are well considered, well written pieces grounded in research and intended to inform. The masterful tone for the work is set in the preface by Richard Eoin Nash, and carries right through to the last page." Click HERE for the complete review.

The book, first released in 2002, traced the evolution of e-Books in "ancient times" (1999 to 2002) as reported by Danny O. Snow in print and online publications such as BookTech Magazine, eBookWeb, Internet Publishing Magazine, and others.

Contemporary readers will note many predictions that came true, such as Snow's repeated warnings to music labels that inexpensive, legal downloads would become the norm. Others hold true today, such as his conviction that the inherent economic advantages of electronic publishing virtually insure that e-Books will play an increasingly important role in the publishing industry.

Now a little slice of history, rather than the current "State of the Art" in the fast-moving world of electronic publishing, Steal the e-Book! is an interesting little footnote in the history of the "printed" word.

The paperback is priced at $9.99 but the electronic book is FREE. Unlike many other "free" downloads that aren't really free, this one truly costs nothing at all. Making copies and giving them to others isn't prohibited -- it's encouraged.

The paperback is available from CreateSpace, Amazon and other online booksellers. The e-Book is available from Smashwords in all leading formats: PDF, Sony e-Reader, Kindle, Stanza for iPhone and more.
