An eBook is an electronic version of a book. American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) eBooks allows users to read publications on any screen with a browser that supports Flash. AAP eBooks have the look of print books, with all of the layout, figures and images intact. Users can see a page at a time or 2-page spreads, and can zoom in for close study. Users can read books online or download them to computers for off-line reading.
In addition to zoom, reading, and
downloading, eBooks are fully searchable and users can annotate, bookmark, and highlight them. Users can
search for terms in a single book, across their purchased titles, or
across the full site. Users can also print a limited number of pages.
Yes! AAP eBooks are available instantly on purchase; with no wait time for shipping or other delays.
Individual eBooks will be updated when errata are published, and purchasers will have the opportunity to be among the first to see new editions when they are released. Subscribers to collections or the full site will automatically get new editions and new titles when they are available.
All AAP eBooks have sample pages
available through ViewInside that users can see before purchasing. Click the View Inside button for a free preview.
