How to view the PDF

  • To download, right click on the underlined link and select “Save as” from the menu that pops up. It might take a minute or two to download.
  • To view online, just click on the link.
  • I’d recommend downloading it, then you can come back to it when you like… in fact, why not print it out. Then you can easily dip in and out of it.

If you find you can’t open the ebook, you might not have a program to open pdf files. Most PCs or tablets have one built in, but just a few PCs don’t – you can get a free one from Adobe’s website at

Do you have a slightly older computer, tablet or smartphone? These versions of the Ebook might be better for your device.
