SAS eBooks for global customers

SAS Hash Object Programming Made EasySAS Publications has been working hard to convert our most popular titles to eBooks. We believe that eBooks are particularly important for our customers outside the US because of shipping costs, import fees, and the time it takes for you to obtain your books.

Benefits to reading eBooks:

  • eBooks are cheaper than paper books, and there are no shipping charges.
  • Instantly available worldwide – there is no waiting for delivery.
  • Full text search is available.
  • Convenient – they are lighter, more portable, and take up less space.
  • Quick to download.
  • No trees are required to manufacture paper.

    This seems interesting! However before buying, I would like to download a test sample (or test chapter) - just to verify that all the techniques are working well.
    There are, alas, many different platforms for ebooks.

      Hi Anders, thank you for your interest in our eBooks! We format eBooks for many different vendor devices (Apple, Amazon, etc). If our files meet the vendor specifications for their devices, then the files upload successfully and are made available for sale. We do not make a sample ebook chapter available for each book. However, we appreciate the suggestion and your feedback. Thank you.

    Hi Anders, I have some follow-up information to share with you - that may be of interest.
    It appears that both Apple and Amazon provide a free sample download of books. Usually that’s the first chapter. Amazon has a search inside feature for up to 20% of the book.
    Apple provides a sample up to 10% of the book or first chapter. Google allows a search up to 20% of the book.

    Not quite the usual saving when buying a Kindle-based copy.
