Viewing and Downloading Help:

If you are viewing an NCI e-book from a browser on an e-book device, the document will open automatically. Kindle users should select the "Kindle Download" option. For all other e-book reader devices, users should select "Other E-readers." NCI e-book files can also be downloaded to a desktop computer and then loaded onto e-book reader devices with a USB cable. If you are on a smartphone or tablet, you will need a mobile e-reader app to view e-book files. If you are on a desktop computer using a standard browser such as Chrome, Internet Explorer, or Firefox and would like to view the e-book on the computer, one option is the free software, Adobe Digital Editions (Windows and Macintosh). For desktops using a standard browser, users should select "Other E-readers."
