    “Best of Smashing Magazine” for the Kindle is not free. They charge 0,99 Euro. Just for the records. Thank you for the free book.

    • 2

      I just downloaded it, opened it. And they still didn’t asked me to pay anything…

      • 3

        I did pay processing charges to my credit card but not to Smashing Magazine. I don;t mind paying the processing charges, worth it!

    Just curiosity, I was about to buy some UX Design eBooks from Amazon , but notice that the price there is higher than the list above ($4.99 -> $6.99), while some, like Smashing Book #3 | Redesign The Web, are lower ( $19.90 -> $11.99 / was $14.90) Why was that ? :)

    FYI, you can downoad PDFs to your iPad or Kindle using the Send To Kindle app.

    Are you missing the word “if” from the second paragraph?

    You are interested in a custom, corporate or educational offer

    If you are interested in a custom, corporate or educational offer

    • 21

      It’s a question, not a statement. Read the full sentence, then it’ll make sense.

      “You are interested in a custom, corporate or educational offer for any of our eBook publications? “

  15. 24

    I currently have a NOOK Color for reading and purchasing the majority of my eBooks, I was wondering about your e pub format. Will I be able to upload it to my nook and be able to see the thumb nail image in my library? When I upload regular PDF files to my device it usually displays a gray box with the title in white letters. Should I look for your books through Barns & Noble instead?

    Thank you & God Bless.

  16. 25

    I don’t mind buying an ebook such as the ones shown on this page for WordPress. However what stops me dead in my tracks is that there is no preview of the contents. And I won’t buy something blindly no matter what the cost.

    • 26

      “If possible, please make an “everything” bundle, thanks.”

      I guess the new subscription is exactly that… by my rough math, all the above bundles together cost about $184 (rounded up to nearest dollar for each bundle), but the annual subscription includes all that plus upcoming books for a year for $99, or $89 right now. Not bad for all this stuff, and no DRM, so you can put them on any platform. This is not my endorsement or free advertisement, I am just crunching the simple numbers. You still save money even if you only want the books available in the library right now.

  17. 27

    If possible, please make an “everything” bundle, thanks.

  18. 28

    Thank you for the free ebook and… happy birthday!

    I’ve just read the smashing ebook ‘produce an ebook with apple pages’. It interesting to see you using Apple Pages and not iBook Author. Was iBook Author around at the time of your evaluation? Have you looked at this application since writing the ebook?

    I would be interested to hear you views and constructive comparison of the two applications.

      Hi David!

      We actually no longer use Apple Pages or iBook Author for our eBook production, but a completely new method that throws less errors across all platforms.

    Hello there,

    I am really in love with your site and your library. But to find the Login to view/download my books is really a big big challenge and is starting to drive me mad.
    Been searching for minutes now and still couldn´t find the Login button. Please help me and please fix this. I have read so much about userfriendliness in your books…

    One more thing – I tried to contact you via the contact form… first error message “Your message is too long”… second error message “Entered value in field “Message” is containing invalid characters.” Arrrgghhhh

    But nonetheless – I am in love with your work!

    Kind regards and thanks in advance,

      Hi Hannes, Gez and Becca, :)

      we are already working on improving the navigation right to your Library-page. In the meanwhile, please do bookmark this site here:

      There you’ll find constantly updates and we will let you know when new eBooks have been published.

      Thanks for the heads-up and enjoy the read,


  38. 58

    Where did you hide the login for library members? Not impressed with your redesign, confusing and scrappy. Like when I select the library tab on the left why doesn’t it stay select to indicate I’m in the library – pretty basic stuff.

  39. 59

    I agree with all the commenters who have complained about the hidden login button. I think I get to it through the store, but I only know how to get there by typing in the URL. wtf. Add a login button to the top right of every screen please!! (or at least on the library page!)

  40. 60


    I’m using an iPad and just want to make sure: will the PDF files keep all the format and layout as in the printed books?

    I have some ebooks bought from amazon (kindle format) and it just only have text + some photos. But not in a beautiful layout.

    I hope all the PDF files is a beautiful as in the printed ebooks.

      Hi Hieu, as for the Smashing Books #1 – #4 as well as for the Mobile Book, the layout of the pdf-files is the same as in the printed books. For Kindle and epub-files however, they are designed for reflowable content, just to make sure you can read them on every reader out there. :)

    Hi. I was just wondering which version of Adobe CS/CC you cover in the relevant books. Thanks.

      Hi Michelle, our books are mostly non-version specific, though all provide hands-on tips and techniques. You might want to check our free eBook to see if this might be working for you. :) — M

    Will the Smashing Magazine Anthology (Smashing Book #1, #2, #3 and #3.5) be available to buy as a hard copy again? When I click on either the e-book or book sections it comes up with an error page and sold out.

    Any ideas where I can buy it would be great.

      Hi Diamond, some of those books are sold-out and probably won’t be available again, sorry! :-)
