Received the e-book publishing contract yesterday, and is dated to begin 10 November (Monday – i.e. tomorrow). To comply with that, I’ll be preparing stripped-down versions of the existing e-books during today, and will replace the existing complete ones at about 9am GMT tomorrow morning. So today is your last chance to download complete free versions of the following e-books:
- Real Enterprise Architecture: beyond IT to the whole enterprise
- Bridging the Silos: enterprise-architecture for IT-architects [incomplete draft]
- SEMPER and SCORE: enhancing enterprise effectiveness
- Power and Response-ability: the human side of systems
The links will still work: but they’ll point to PDF files of sample-chapters, not the whole content.
Full details of where and how to purchase the e-books to follow in a future post: but I believe the price will be around £25.00 per copy, the same as the respective printed books.
At present you’ll still be able to download complete free e-books in the other series (Alternate Realities, Social Challenges and General Books). From now on, though, all books in the business-oriented Enterprise Architecture series – such as the upcoming The Viable Enterprise: enterprise architecture and the service-oriented enterprise – will go straight to full-price e-book as well as printed book.
