Books by David Michalets

David Michalets self-published several books. Some were written with Kindle Direct Publishing, KDP.  KDP enables the book to be distributed by Amazon in both the 6x9 paperback format or as a Kindle download. Only Amazon can distribute a book or pdf from KDP for their Kindle. After the initial 7 paperbacks, several subsequent books were written in Word and output in pdf format, enabling their free distribution from this site; the pdf has no paperback.

The progression of publication is:
1-7   are paperback books published using KDP; the others are a mix of a book and a free PDF.
Total of 10 paperbacks and 4 as PDF.

The last 4 publications, 15 to 18, are books as  a series of web pages, which is a format having links but where needed, so this format has no separate file for references.

Therefore, the word book in the title of this page is a publication by me in the primary format of either a paperback, web-book,  or a PDF.  Each paperback is also in Kindle download format.

This page hosts 3 items for each book or publication:

1) its revision history,

2) its description and distribution,

3) link to its references page, with links for each on-line reference in the publication..

The last page in each book or pdf directs the reader to this web page to get the links to references in that publication.

In the revision history,    Dates are MM/DD/YYYY.
 n/c is no change later..

The first 10 paperbacks are available from Amazon, using its distribution link, in either 6x9 paperback or Kindle download.

Each free pdf is available from its post which was submitted to 1 or more groups.  Each free file does not have a book available for purchase. 2 of the PDF files were subsequently enhanced and published as books.

The free web-books are available from this page.

Web Books

Following books were written as a free series of web pages.
 The first web page is the table of contents for the series.

The main reasons for this new format are:

1) free to anyone having access to Internet,

2) the view of an Image in a black&white book cannot be changed by the reader.

3)  in this format, an image  from a link,  possibly in color, can be zoomed as needed by the reader.

This should be more efficient for the user's platform, when an image is processed only after a click on a link.

PDF is an alternative format to a book, where images can be embedded,  resulting in a file having a high byte count.  PDF is distributed as an email attachment, or by link to its URL.

This is the First web-book, or publication 15:
