Peachpit’s titles include the Adobe Press, New Riders, Apple Pro Training, and Apple Training series, while Pearson publishes titles under the Addison Wesley, Cisco Press, IBM Press, Que, Prentice Hall, Pearson IT Certification, and Sams imprints. “I’m especially delighted to be able to bring our richly illustrated training and inspirational books for creative professionals and Apple pros to the iBookstore,” said Nancy Aldrich-Ruenzel, Peachpit’s publisher. “This resource offers even more options for experiencing our authors’ great content, not just through the touch screen, but also with cool features such as the two-page spread view.” Both publisher’s titles are available for purchase via the iBookstore, which is built-in to Apple’s free iBooks app for the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad.
