eBooks

Our electronic books are digital versions of our guides, and are available in three formats: ePUB, mobi, and PDF.

 

We offer electronic versions of our popular pocket-sized legal books and full-sized handbooks. These eBooks are available in three formats: ePUB, .mobi, and PDF.
Our ePUB format can be read on any computer and most handheld devices using the appropriate reading device -- including iPhone, iPad, and Android, plus Windows and Mac computer operating systems.
Mobi format is compatible with Kindle and Nook e-reading devices, along with some readers for Windows or Mac computers. PDF format is best suited for desktop or laptop computers rather than handheld devices. PDFs do not readily support text reflow which make the format more difficult to use on a small screen device such as a smart phone.

 

For answers to frequently asked questions regarding electronic books, please visit our eBook FAQs page.

 

Digital versions of our guides are available by email, and a backup CD may also be purchased.

 

Note: Once purchased, books must be downloaded within 24 hours. If you experience problems related to this, please email sales@pocketpressinc.com.

The number of users is based on the maximum number of people who could be using the software at any given time. For example, with a department of 100 officers, where the maximum number of officers working at any time is 30, the pricing would be $7.64 for each eBook copy. In a Prosecutor's office, where 100 attorneys and paralegals would be using the software at any given time, the pricing would be $6.74 per copy.

Customer Comments

Our best advertising is our customers.

"I immediately liked the small, convienent size and quick-locating index. Plus, there was a large increase in the Hispanic population in our area after Hurricane Katrina, and I need a simple and easy tool to help me communicate and stay the professional that I am. [Our Criminal Law guides have a 'Spanish for Street Officers' section. This helpful reference has sample dialogues for typical traffic and subject stops as well as commands for use when dealing with high risk incidents]."

—Street officer

"My department is going to buy them for everyone, but I want them as quickly as possible, I want 2 of each [criminal & traffic] as soon as you get them in."

"I am a police officer in Wisconsin, and this is the third year in a row I have ordered the criminal codes for my state. This year I ordered the Traffic Codes as well. I am also a field training officer, and find these books a great resource for trainees. I try to provide the new officer one when they complete their training program."

—FTO, Wisconsin
