It appears to be downloaded onto my computer but it will not open.  It says it opens with EPUB reader.  Have no idea what that is or what to do now. I have a free reader by Doxillon. and Adobe Acrobat.  I know, I'm electronically challenged and  don't understand these things. Can someone explain what I must do in simple terms? Thank you

Looks like I got lucky and found out about Adobe Editions which I downloaded and it opens the book! Yea! Problem solved.

I have an iPhone 7. When I press “download this attachment”, there is a brief (1second) indication of some activity (blue line at the top of the screen) then nothing. It wasn’t long enough for the download and no error message popped up.



I downloaded on iPhone 11, it goes directly into “files” then to “downloads”.  Not sure the iPhone 7 has your files?  If you use iCloud the newer phones have files that you put in iCloud from your computer so they all link.

This *.epub will not open.  I absolutely HATE epubs.  Why don't you send it out with a choice for pdf?

Do you have an epub reader?

When we were doing layout, we had a huge number of people insist that people that read eBooks NEED epub.  That PDF as an ebook is awful and causes suffering.

An app that makes it so you can read epub books.

Thanks for the free book. However, it seems to only be available as an epub file, and I use a Kindle. Is it available in a Kindle supported format too?

Right thanks. Not to seem churlish, but it's not free on Amazon.

Understood, thanks. Do you, or does anyone else here, know if there is a program that can translate the epub edition into something that can be read on a Kindle?

I think there is a post earlier in this thread about how a kindle can read epub.

Okay, I found what may be a way to resolve this. This may help other Kindle users - go to https://calibre-ebook.com/download where there is a free download to a program that will translate an epub into other formats. I've just done it, and I now have the book loaded on my Kindle.
Thanks again for the book - I look forward to reading it!
