Digital Downloads

Okay, we hear you...fewer and fewer computers have CD drives, and shipping is an ever-increasing hassle. With the addition of digital downloads, we aim to solve both problems, speeding delivery and saving you $ at the same time.

You can order any of Walter Simmons' books directly from this page using the links alongside each title. Like our CDs, all of these books are in PDF format, so you will need Adobe Acrobat to read and navigate through them. That's available as a free download directly from the Adobe website. Further information on each book is available elsewhere on our site.

So there you have it, instant access with no shipping charges.
