EBook FAQs

Many of our books are available as digital eBooks. For this purpose, we use secure PDFs that offer content identical to the print version. You'll be able to:

  • Highlight
  • Take notes
  • Add bookmarks (IOS and Android Devices at this time)
  • Search
  • Navigate instantly with one click

Do these PDFs require a special reader?

Yes. Our eBooks require the free Javelin Reader. Javelin Reader has robust highlighting and note-taking features. It also offers bookmarking (IOS and Android devices currently) and search functions, in addition to clickable shortcuts that allow lightning-fast access to all the content in the print edition. Javelin is a free download. Our ebooks are not compatible with Adobe Reader.

Are your eBooks readable on all devices?

With a few minor exceptions, yes! Our Javelin eBooks are compatible with Windows and Mac OSX, and on phones and tablets that run iOS or Android. They can also be read on Kindle Fire tablets in most cases, but not Kindle Reader. See a full list of compatible devices.

Phones noted above are compatible, but not recommended, as most people find reading books on a small screen is not effective.

How do I receive my eBook?

You will receive an email with instructions and "Product Activation Code" that enables the eBook.

That expiration date may be extended depending on digital product availability at that time. For security purposes and copyright protection for the author, printing is not allowed.

What if I need more devices?

While access to your secure eBook is initially set to your computer and one of your mobile devices, should you replace one of your devices with a new one in the future, as a registered user you may contact us at that time to add your new device (iahe@iahe.com).
