Save 50% in Take Control’s Back to School Sale

by Adam C. Engst

Our teenage son prefers to deny it, but as we move into August, it’s hard not to think about the start of school. For those of you for whom learning is a lifetime endeavor, we’d like to make it a little easier to pick up new skills. Through 15 August 2013, you can add any number of our ebooks to your Take Control library [1] for 50 percent off the cover price. All books are DRM-free and available in PDF, EPUB, and Mobipocket (Kindle) formats, so you can read wherever, whenever, and on whatever device you like.

We don’t expect you to read every one of our books cover to cover, much as we’d be honored if you did. Instead, each book has a Quick Start section that gives you a look into the book beyond the Table of Contents so you can jump instantly to the sections that will teach you what you want to know.

Whether it’s fixing up your passwords, setting up sensible backups, using your iPad, going paperless, or finally writing your own book in iBooks Author or Scrivener, we have a title to help. We also have ebooks about Mountain Lion (and the last decade of older versions of Mac OS X), iCloud, GarageBand, iTunes, Mail, Messages, Safari, CrashPlan, DEVONthink, Dropbox, LaunchBar, PDFpen, and TextExpander.

What can you learn from our expert authors? Tons. Here are some highlights:

So stock your Take Control library [2] today with all the titles that you’ve been wanting to read or that you think might become useful in the future!

Thanks for your continued support, and the many useful questions and kind comments you’ve sent over the years. And please, if you would do us a quick favor, spread the word about this sale to friends and colleagues!
