Starpath iBooks for Mac, iPad, iPhone, and iPod
We are in the process of adding all of our books to the Apple iBooks format. Here is what we have so far. They are purchased from the iBooksStore from within your device. The links below provide some discussion and option to download a sample.
If you use one of these devices, especially a Mac or iPad, then these versions of our ebooks will likely be the best bet for you, although you may also want to compare to the pdf versions we have. They both work well, and the images can all be zoomed to see details. The graphics are better in these iBooks than they are in the printed books or Kindle ebooks, because Apple has a more generous size limit on their ebooks, which is a big advantage to highly-illustrated books like ours.
To read these iBooks on a Mac, you will need OS X Mavericks or newer, which now has an iBooks reader built into the OS.
Click a book below for display at the iBookstore, or look each up in the starpath.com printed books catalog for more details and reviews.
 The wonderful young-adult boating adventure book by John Dowd, Hatian Pick-up, has been available for some time as an iBook. If you have children old enough to read, they will enjoy this book, especially if you are a boating family. Or you can read it to them, and you will enjoy the story yourself. We will eventually be publishing all of John Dowd's young adult titles. This is not our normal navigation fare, but they are written by a skilled navigator, who knows children and maritime affairs very well.
 Polar Dream is written by Starpath friend Helen Thayer. We are proud to have worked with her on navigation matters for many years for many adventures to both Polar Regions and to the Gobi Desert.
 Secrets of Viking Navigators by our longtime friend Leif Karlsen remains the definitive work on this subject. We are proud to have a taken a small part in the research presented in the book. This book is the subject of an article in the Transactions of the Royal Society of London.
