Their more traditional titles are complemented with freely available digital resources, including extra chapters, reviews, links and image galleries. These resources can be found alongside the relevant ebook on their website.

To read the ebooks directly from the website click on Read the PDF or Read the HTML buttons on the front page of each book title. To download a PDF, epub or mobi version of a title, just click on the relevant download button, as shown in the sceenshot below.
