1) What is an E-Book?
E-Book is short for Electronic Book which is read on your computer's screen.
Just like a real book, your E-Books can contain text and pictures, but there's more!
An AABS E-Book can also incorporate animations, sounds and links to web sites
Our E-Books are searchable which makes them ideal for students and researchers looking for a particular quotation or passage.

2)What are the software requirements to read your books?
AABS E-Books are self-contained Windows programs (.exe) that can be run by simply double clicking on them. The only requirements are Windows 9x or later and Internet Explorer 4 (IE4) or later. YOU DO NOT NEED ADOBE ACROBAT OR ANY OTHER BOOK READER WITH OUR BOOKS.

3)How do I read an E-Book?
Just like a 'normal' book. But instead of turning pages by hand you click on the 'Previous' or 'Next' buttons on the screen. AABS have also set up the screen to look like a web page so you can use your own browser's buttons to move through the book too!

We have provided a 'Search' button so you can search through the WHOLE BOOK for words / phrases - and a 'Find' button so you can search for a word / phrase on the page you are viewing.

4) Can I print the book to read away from my PC?
There is a 'Print' button on the Toolbar. Please note that this function may be disabled in some of our new author E- books to preserve the authors' rights.

6) How can I read or browse a book to see if I will like it?
Go to our book page and read the short description about each book. Click on the 'download' link and download the book to your hard drive. This is FREE. Double click on the book icon you have downloaded to your hard drive (in the form of an .exe file) and it will install itself as a stand alone book. Then, you can read one or more selected pages FREE.

7) If I like the book I chose - how do I buy it?
Look for the "password protected" page in your E-Book and follow the instructions you will find there. You may pay on-line, using your credit card, and have instant access to the complete contents of your E-Book!

8) I do not want to use a credit or debit card to buy a book.
You can pay by
cash/cheque (in £UK, $US or € Euros) to the address on the "Contact Us" page in this site. But please contact us first and please give us the Title of your book, your e-mail and postal address, and a printed copy of the "password protected" page. We will return the unlock code to you by e-mail or by post, which ever you wish. South American customers - please e-mail us, we are in the process of setting up payment options in Argentina for cash.

9) My hard drive crashed and I lost the book. Can I have another copy?
Yes. Please contact us. We will ask you for proof of purchase.

10) I lent a copy of the book to a friend and it will not work on their PC.
Good - that means our protection program works! Your password is unique to you and your PC. If a copy is made (other than by us) either onto a CD or onto another PC the book will not unlock.
