Take Control Sale: 50% Off to Celebrate Account Management

by Adam C. Engst

We've created a new Take Control account management system that enables everyone who has ever ordered a Take Control ebook to access all their purchased books on our site. The marquee feature is that you can read your ebooks directly from our site on an iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch. You can also re-download purchased PDFs, get free updates, download EPUB and Mobipocket versions, and more.

To celebrate this new system, we're having a 50-percent-off sale on all the ebooks we sell. This is a great opportunity to try your first Take Control title, and our system will automatically create an account for you and register your book with it. And for those who already have numerous Take Control titles, although our account management system also knows what books you can upgrade at a discount, the sale is the cheapest and easiest way to update several ebooks in one trip through the cart.

To take advantage of this limited-time sale, visit our catalog using this coupon-loaded link [1], select the titles you want, and click the Buy Selected Ebooks button. You'll see the coupon code and the discount on the first screen of the cart. The sale runs through 3 August 2010.

We particularly recommend our iPad-related ebooks, including:

(Don't forget Tonya's "Take Control of iPad Basics," but it's free!)

But we still focus on the Mac and Mac OS X, with recent titles such as:

And recent application-specific ebooks include:

To see a full list and shop with sale prices, use the link above to visit the Take Control categorized catalog, or use this coupon-loaded link [2] to view all our ebooks, sorted alphabetically.

Thanks for the support! We couldn't afford to create useful services like the Take Control account management system without your continued help.
