Thank you for your interest in Windows 8.1 Field Guide, a full-length e-book about Windows 8.1. This is in many ways a spiritual update to Windows 8 Secrets, our previous book. But this time, we did things differently.

With Windows 8.1 Field Guide, we used the pricing model popularized by mobile apps, but with a twist: We also let you, the reader, pick your price so you can pay more (or less) than our recommended price of $2. Yes, $2.

So what did $2 buy you? In this case, it provided you with one or more electronic versions of the book in the following formats: PDF, MOBI and EPUB. And when we reached the 1.0 milestone, we made the book available in Amazon Kindle and Barnes & Noble NOOK formats, though those versions had to be purchased separately from those e-book stores. (The price was roughly the same.)

Now, with the release of Windows 10 Field Guide, we are calling this book done and making it available for free.

Current price: Free!
