Packt (www.PacktPub.com), the innovative, fast-growing publisher, announced today the launch of its LITE Edition books. Available in eBook format for $9.99, books in the LITE Edition have been carefully extracted from a full Packt book to give you just the right amount of information to get you started as quickly as possible.
Books in the LITE Edition require minimum effort to consume while providing maximum value to get developers up and running. A LITE Edition book is built around the motto “minimum effort, maximum value”, focusing on sharing the experiences of your fellow IT professionals, refining and distilling it into an easily digestible book.
“LITE Edition books is an exciting new range for Packt as it represents an alternative for customers who want a cutting-edge solution-based book but have less time to consume the full edition Packt books and this lack of time for consumption is usually restrictive to their progression” said Julian Copes, a spokesperson at Packt.
“LITE Edition books are a way that Packt is able to provide further options for developers who read our books to assist their development needs. These concise manuals for solving specific problems will provide extensive value for readers” said Louay Fatoohi, editorial director at Packt Publishing.
The new range of books will launch with 24 LITE books including titles extracted from Packt’s popular titles; the MySQL Admin Cookbook, the Unity 3D Game Development by Example Beginner's Guide, and the Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 Cookbook.
LITE Edition books are available from Friday 13th May 2011. To see the LITE Edition books available, visit: www.PacktPub.com/lite-editions
