What is an "E-book"?

An "e-book" or "electronic book" is delivered or downloaded in electronic form. An e-book is less expensive because our costs are lower. An e-book is not taxable and there are no shipping fees.

When you purchase the e-book, you will receive a URL that you will click on. This will begin a download of the file onto your computer.

Depending on the speed of your connection and the size of the e-book, this can take a few seconds to a few minutes to complete.

The Wrightslaw: IDEA 2004 e-book is in PDF format. To read it, you will need the free Adobe Acrobat PDF Reader, which is probably already installed on your computer. If you don't have Adobe Acrobat PDF Reader, download a FREE copy here

Once you've saved the e-book file, double click on the filename to open it. If it opens, that means you have Acrobat Reader installed on your computer. If it doesn't open, you need to download a free copy of Acrobat Reader at http://adobe.com/products/acrobat/readermain.html
