An e-book is a digital book that you can read on your computer, laptop, e-reader, tablet or smartphone, provided the right software is installed.
What is an ePub?
ePub is a file format that can be read on most e-readers, tablets and smartphones. If it is in ePub format, the text in the file is automatically adjusted to suit the screen size of the device on which you are reading the book. If it is in ePDF format, the page size is not automatically adjusted to suit the screen size. The Boom Basics series can be bought in ePub 3.0 format; all other publications are only available in ePDF format. E-books ordered via our website are protected by watermarks.
How can I order an e-book?
You can order an e-book just as easily and quickly as a physical book. After you have completed the order, we will send you a download link by e-mail. Via this link you can download the e-book. This link will be valid for 1 year.
Digital products cannot be cancelled or returned. When ordering a digital product, you waive your right of withdrawal.
Watermark Protection on e-books
1. Protected with a watermark

Eleven’s e-books are all protected with a watermark. You can read this e-book on multiple devices.
