Winter never really kicked in here at Take Control HQ this year, but spring’s sunny days and rising temperatures have now spurred the crocuses into action, so we’re celebrating with a sale! Now’s the time to beef up your Take Control reference library — add any number of books for 50 percent off, through 21 March 2016.
All our 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. Remember, there’s no need to read a Take Control title from front to back; instead, each book has a Quick Start that helps you jump instantly to the information you need.
We’ve been hard at work the past few months on updates to a wide variety of titles — the tech world never sits still, so if you’re using any of these apps or services, you can now benefit from updated advice and tips. Check out:
“Take Control of 1Password, Second Edition” provides extensive documentation of AgileBits’ hugely popular password management tool. Put bluntly, if you’re not using a good password manager, you should be, and this book will help even experienced users make the most of 1Password’s newest features.
“Take Control of Dropbox, Second Edition” explains how to sync your own files through the Dropbox service and collaborate productively with other Dropbox users, along with explaining the many changes to Dropbox in the past year. It includes a cheat sheet you can share with colleagues who need Dropbox help.
“Take Control of Your Apple Wi-Fi Network” is the most complete guide to setting up, maintaining, and troubleshooting a Wi-Fi network with the Apple’s current gear. We refer to this book regularly whenever anything goes wonky with our wireless network.
“Take Control of OS X Server” covers Server 5 in El Capitan for anyone looking to turn a Mac into a server for a home, small business, or classroom. It’s an essential guide — running a server requires a lot of knowledge.

“Take Control of iCloud, Fourth Edition” remains the canonical reference to everything iCloud can do. If you’re not sure which features go with iCloud, how they work together, or how best to use them, read this book.
We also have books about El Capitan, iOS 9, Apple Mail, Audio Hijack, iWork (Pages, Numbers, and Keynote), PDFpen, Scrivener, TextExpander, Terminal, and much more. So stock your Take Control library today with the titles that you’ve been wanting to read or that might be useful in the future.
