Pearson Launches New Early Edition Ebook Service
Pearson announced that readers everywhere will now have the opportunity to get early access to important, time-sensitive topics and technologies before the official publication. Available exclusively through Pearson, Early Edition multiformat ebooks (PDF, ePUB, and MOBI) have been through preliminary stages of editing and technical review, but content and presentation are not yet final. By purchasing an Early Edition, customers automatically will receive an updated, official edition of the multiformat ebook when it is available.
These Early Edition titles share a focus on hot emerging technologies. The first set includes: The Core iOS 6 Developer's Cookbook by Erica Sadun, Learning Objective-C 2.0 by Robert Clair, and Programming in Objective-C, 5th Edition by Stephen Kochan. An Early Edition title typically becomes available 60 to 90 days prior to a book’s publication. For more information about the Early Edition iOS 6 titles, visit informit.com/ios6.
“Developers can’t wait for the right answers, especially from amazing teachers and trainers like Erica Sadun, Stephen Kochan, and Robert Clair,” said Paul Boger, publisher of Pearson Technology Group. “We want our customers to gain expertise as soon as the experts do. With Early Editions, they can.”
Pearson is home to such respected brands as Addison-Wesley Professional, Cisco Press, Exam Cram, IBM Press, Prentice Hall Professional, Que, Sams Publishing, and VMware Press, which have as its online publishing arm, InformIT-The Trusted Technology Learning Source. In addition, Berkeley-based Peachpit, the publishing partner for Adobe Press, Apple Certified, and others, publishes best-selling books for creative design professionals.
