Save 50% in Take Control’s February Book Sale

by Adam C. Engst

Faced with rising snowdrifts and falling temperatures here at Take Control HQ, we’ve decided to liven up the season with a sale — it beats shoveling the driveway again! No matter what your weather, now’s the time to add any number of our books to your Take Control library for 50 percent off [1], through 25 February 2015. All our titles are DRM-free and available in PDF, EPUB, and Mobipocket (Kindle) formats, so you can access the real-world Mac and iOS advice you need wherever, whenever, and on whatever device you like.

Since Apple’s massive releases of OS X Yosemite and iOS 8 last year, our hard-working authors have been researching and writing new titles and updates alike, all with the goal of providing you with up-to-date answers to your Mac and iOS questions.

In particular, check out our snazzy new Take Control Crash Courses, which bring you the first-rate content you expect from us in shorter, magazine-like chunks so you can dip in and read quickly. We have Crash Courses on Yosemite, iOS 8, and “Digital Sharing for Apple Users” — that last one explains how to work effectively in today’s spaghetti-like ecosystem of devices, services, and collaborators.

Other titles that have been revised recently to cover changes in Yosemite and iOS 8 include the following:

More gems are available for 50 percent off in our catalog, making this a great time to stock up on books you can turn to for help [2] when you need it, including titles about upgrading to Yosemite, automating your Mac, setting up a paperless office, the impressively useful utility LaunchBar, AirPort Wi-Fi networking, the Apple TV, and much more. We give readers minor updates for free, so your library can stay up to date throughout the year!

Remember, we don’t expect you to read every book cover to cover; instead, use the Table of Contents and Quick Start to jump instantly to the topics that explain what you want to know.

Thank you for supporting the Take Control series — we couldn’t do it without you! And, if we can ask a quick favor, it would be great if you could spread the word about this sale, since the proceeds make a big difference to our authors and help them continue to focus on writing books for you.
