They are in unprotected .PDF format so they are readable on PCs, laptops and many mobile devices and e-readers and can be transfered to any device¹ you want as much as you want.

However, the .PDF files are watermarked/personalised and contain the buyers details to discourage unauthorised copying. The eBooks are strictly for personal use. It is not allowed to transfer or copy the eBook for someone else.

Boost Audio/Video Presentations

As an extra service to our readers, we have created approximately 40 audio/video presentations on the contents of Volumes I and II in order to speed up the learning process even more! Each presentation is of a ½ hour duration approximately and is viewable online. We discuss each library in the book in detail and listening to the presentations is an ideal way to become acquainted with the Boost C++ libraries. We see it as an ideal companion to the hard back and e-form versions of the books.

We are offering the full presentations for registered readers of the book(s) for €75 excluding VAT per volume. The presentations for both volumes together are available at a discounted price of €125 excluding VAT.

If you are interested in the videos, please contact Daniel J. Duffy at:  

This offer is valid until June 1 2012.
