Should be mentioned that these are only PDF files. Might be a good idea to add to title.

Chapter can be downloaded as PDFs by using "download tokens". The token … Chapter can be downloaded as PDFs by using "download tokens". The token value of the chapter is determined by its publisher (most are 1 token but token values do vary). Once logged in, you will notice PDF icons next to entries in the Table of Contents of many of our books. By clicking on those icons, you will start the process of redeeming tokens and generating a PDF for offline viewing. Remember, in order for 10-slot Safari Bookshelf subscribers to download a chapter from a book, the title must first reside on your My Bookshelf. Also note that Safari Library accounts have the ability to download chapters andfull books as PDFs.

To be honest, I don't think that is going to happen since it is a US company. I bet they just send a link to a PDF file. I could be wrong, but it is rare for US based businesses to send freebies over here.

They certainly ship to the UK as I've ordered books on Logic Pro from them. Don't be such a cynic - it's worth a go!

PS - it confirmed 'Shipping first week of May'.

:thumbsup: Not being cynical, but it is good to beat out the details. If you have already received freebies from them, then great, it looks like they are ok.:)

Wow, nice offer! Thanks.

Update: the trial itself is a bit shoddy - after viewing few books message appeared: "Thank you for trying Safari Books Online. Unfortunately, you have exceeded the maximum number of page views allowed for this trial.

That's a shame, coz they have many good books.
