At Centripetal Press, we prefer physical, hardback books over ebooks. A tangible book engages the mind of a learner more deeply and it doesn’t lend itself to easy distraction by the internet so close by.
However, we understand that there are times when an ebook is suitable for a particular situation and therefore we publish ebook versions of our textbooks.
Our ebooks contain the same full-color illustrations and the same narrative as the textbooks. They also contain all graphs, charts, and exercises from the text. Please note: the softcover supplements (experiment manuals, solutions manuals, etc.) are not available in ebook.
Our ebooks are now hosted by EdTech Software on their website called ShelfIt.com. Books can be viewed either in a web browser or in an app on your smartphone or tablet. Just download the free app called EdTech Reader and access your books.
EdTech Reader works with PC, Mac, Android, and iPhone platforms. Chromebook users access books through the web interface.
EdTech Reader includes a “read-aloud” feature, ability to highlight and take notes, adjust font size, and many more features.
When used in classroom settings, teachers can add supplemental content: notes, quizzes, video links. Teachers can manage individual student content, customizing supplemental content for the class or on a per-student basis. 5-year licenses can be reissued to new students each year.
