General Information

HP Press eBooks require the use of a reader application compatible with Adobe's DRM (Digital Rights Management) technology.

There are many such e-readers available. Regardless of which one you choose, to ensure proper functioning you MUST authorize the eReader BEFORE downloading eBooks from the HP Press site.

Each eBook can be downloaded on up to SIX devices running on different platforms (plus 1 additional authorization per year). Deauthorization on one device does not allow for authorization on a new device beyond the allotted number. You can re-download a purchased eBook from our site anytime without additional payment. Please follow the instructions below for the platform(s) relevant to you.

Warning! When installing Adobe DRM-compatible readers, please DO NOT select the option "I want to authorize my computer without an ID." If you authorize your computer without entering a Vendor ID, Adobe DRM protected items that you already have or that you will download in the future will only be readable on one particular device. These items will not be readable on other devices, and you will not be able to restore from a backup if you ever need to re-install your OS.
