All Wrox e-books DRM-free in 3 formats: PDF, Mobi, ePub

We have been gradually making improvements to the ebook selection over the last 1-2 years. Today, we’re announcing that all Wrox ebooks purchased at are now DRM-free AND available for download in the 3 major formats –  PDF, Mobi, EPub.

So, when you complete a purchase of a "PDF" at, you’ll instead be getting not just the PDF but also the Mobi file and an ePub in a zip with the PDF. (Please note, the Mobi format file has a .prc extension. It’s one of several valid extensions for Mobi files.) With these 3 formats you get the benefit of being able to read the book you’ve purchased on almost any ebook device or platform you might own. You get the convenience of all 3 formats in case you prefer reading PDF on a PC and using Mobi or ePub on a portable device.

In doing this, I hope we are making things much clearer for you when you buy an ebook at I’ve eliminated the previous lists of which ebooks at are in which formats – just know if you buy an ebook here, you now get all 3 formats. And of course, all Wrox ebooks here are price lower than their print versions as they have been for some time.

These 3-format DRM-free ebook purchases are now available at for about 200 of our books including almost every book published in the last 2-3 years and several dozen older books.

If you need an older "rare" Wrox ebook that isn’t for sale on, O’Reilly’s retail ebook site sells Wrox books new and old including some that we only have in PDF so are no longer selling at Likewise, Amazon converted a handful of Wrox ebooks to Mobi format on their own and sells them in the Kindle store. While we don’t have those files to sell you, if Kindle is your main need and we don’t have the older Wrox book you need, check Amazon as well.

We hope you have a great experience with these 3-format ebooks. If you encounter any problems, we’ve got a great Wiley tech support group helping Wrox and able to get you missing files or anything else you might need.

    I am not all that familiar with Microsoft’s MSDN, but the Wrox book Beginning Visual C++ 2010 is on it here.   Legitimate, I assume.

    Is there any effort underway to offer e-book editions to folks who have purchased an actual book (even if there is an incremental cost)? I find that I prefer to read the actual book at home, but when I’m traveling, I would like to refer to the ebook instead of carrying the actual book. Thanks!
