Re: Get the "LaTeX Beginner's Guide" ebook for free

I have not read the book properly, but nice book for beginners.
The right corner of this website has a link for this featured book. However, the free download time has alredy passed. So, is the link "Free download soon" still useful ?

Thank you for the info, I removed the link, which pointed to this forum thread (not directly to the publisher's download site),

dmitris and mnkc, if you are really interested in the book, perhaps I can speak with their marketing people.

As I said,

but sometimes the publisher provides also single book copies for promotion. For example, if somebody would write a blog post or article (we can easily publish here) about a related topic with mentioning of the book to satisfy the publisher's marketing people.

If anybody would be interested, let me know, such as here in the thread or even better, send me a message.

I found the book before I found this Forum. I am a regular on the Packt website and have downloaded several free e-books from their site as well as purchasing several e-books and printed books. Your book was just what I needed to discover LaTeX. I can't believe it was offered free. Every time I read through it I find something new that I can apply. It's a great book. Thanks for writing it.
