Why our CD books are a better choice than many others.
Books on CD by Destiny Publications are exact replicas of -- and produced in the same format as -- the originals. They include high quality illustrations along with footnotes (when applicable), either of which are often absent from other books on cd. Our publications are presented in one of the world's most widely recognized file formats, Adobe Acrobat Reader. This versatile format is compatible with all operating systems (Windows, Mac and Linux). If you don't already have Reader installed on your computer, versions for most operating systems are provided on every disk.
Our CD books make available to everyone rare and out-of-print titles, which would otherwise be too costly and/or difficult for the average reader to acquire. If you owned an original copy of one of these books, it is likely that it would be too valuable to risk deterioration by handling it. Our archival quality copies on CD, when properly cared for, have an estimated life of 100 years.
Another key advantage of this format is that pages can be sized to adjust the comfort level of the reader. Also, illustrations can be increased in size to reveal details otherwise hidden. Traveling with a few CDs and a laptop is more convenient than a stack of books. Our books have string search capabilities, which can quickly locate any word or combination of words in the document. Another quick way to navigate within the document are the active links to each chapter.
All production and distributuion rights to the CD and included documents being offered are held exclusively by Destiny Publications, Copyright 2004-2006. All images used in the documents have been digitally watermarked to prove origin and ownership. (Watermarks are in digital code and do not show on the displayed images.) Adobe, the Adobe logo, and Reader are either registered trademarks or trademarks of Adobe Systems Incorporated in the United States and/or other countries.
