MAA is now offering some of its newest titles electronically, allowing convenient access, portability, searchability, and flexibility of use. You can purchase a complete book or, in some cases, individual chapters in PDF format.

Most of our books have “social” DRM, which means they have a watermark with the name of the purchaser and the fact that the book is for personal use only. These PDFs should work on any device that can read a PDF. We highly recommend that you use Adobe Acrobat Reader for viewing our PDFs, results using other readers cannot be guaranteed. iBooks can read our social DRM books, but for the best performance with links, etc. we recommend that you download the Adobe Reader app.

Our textbooks continue to be offered in secure PDF format. Our secure PDFs are protected with digital rights management (DRM) and you can download copies on three different computers. Please note that the secure PDFs will open only on the Mac and Windows operating systems.  iOS tablets can open secure PDFs using the AWReader app (available in the App Store).  The iOs app uses the native iPad PDF reader so it is a very basic reader, no frills.  AWReader for Mac computers is much more full featured.  PCs read our secure PDFs using Acrobat Reader.  Linux is not supported at this time for our secure PDFs.  Click here for more information.

For some of our books, notably those in our Notes series, a Print-on-Demand option allows you to obtain a printed and bound copy (with cover) of an entire book. No returns will be accepted on Print-on-Demand books. Please note that all Print-on-Demand books are paperbound. 

Many of our books are also offered in hardcover or paperback in the MAA Store.  It is important to note that the MAA Store is a separate shopping cart from the eBooks Store.

Customers are encouraged to keep their “download page” email. It contains all of the information you will need should it become necessary for you to download another copy of your book.
