O'Reilly Ebook Bundles: PDF
PDF ebooks from O'Reilly are faithful representations of our printed books. Whenever possible, they also include navigational bookmarks and live hyperlinks (both for internal linking and links to external websites and resources).
Our PDFs are DRM free because we trust our customers to do the right thing. Reasonable sharing, as you would do with a print book, is allowed. You are free to copy and paste and print the document for your personal use. You are not allowed to place the content on a server for downloading, and you should purchase a site license if you wish to share the PDF with a group of developers on an Intranet.
While there's a tremendous range of PDF reading software, we've had the fewest problem reports from Adobe Reader. Customers using Macintosh computers in particular may want to ensure that Adobe Reader and not Preview is used to view ebooks.
On the Apple iPad, O'Reilly PDFs render best and most consistently with the iBooks app, so we recommend it, despite the fact that it is not as feature-rich as other PDF readers on the iPad. iBooks version 1.1.1 and forward includes clickable hyperlinks between PDF pages and takes advantage of PDF bookmarks to create a table of contents.
