We're completely on track to release all four of our Tiger titles simultaneously with Tiger itself, and we've come up with yet another reason to upgrade - by getting one of the ebooks for free.

<http://www.takecontrolbooks.com/news/>

"Take Control of Upgrading to Tiger" Free with Tiger Purchase -- It's a safe bet that almost everyone who buys "Take Control of Upgrading to Tiger" will also be ordering Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger itself. So why not get the ebook for free? All you have to do is pre-order the ebook, click the Check for Updates button in your pre-order copy to find a coupon code worth $5 off at Small Dog Electronics, and then use the coupon when you buy Tiger from Small Dog. They'll even throw in some Vermont maple syrup (in a bottle, presumably)!
