First 2 Inquirer e-books on sale

By

Now available on the Inquirer Digital newsstand (http://bit.ly/Inquirer-digital) for PCs, Macs, iPads, iPhones, iPod Touches and Android smartphones and tablets, are two of its first electronic books (or e-books), both by columnists of the Inquirer.

The first book is “With Due Respect: Selected Columns from the Philippine Daily Inquirer” by retired Chief Justice Artemio V. Panganiban.

The second book is “No Free Lunch: Economics in Bite-sized Pieces, Selected Columns from the Philippine Daily Inquirer” by former National Economic and Development Authority head Cielito Habito, a noted economist.

Panganiban’s book, compiled and edited by Inquirer editor John Nery, highlights columns that explain the inner workings of the Supreme Court and the importance of legal and electoral reforms in advancing Philippine democracy.

Despite the potentially abstruse nature of the subject matter, Panganiban’s columns are written in “simple, understandable language that uses a minimum of legal jargon” and are marked by “simplicity of style, clarity of thought and unassailable logic,” Inquirer publisher Isagani Yambot writes in the book’s foreword.

Also marked by a disarming lack of dense technical language are the columns that make up “No Free Lunch,” edited by Dax Lucas of Inquirer Business section.

The book tackles poverty, agriculture, the environment, overseas Filipino workers and globalization, taxes and the intersection between economic ideals and the nature of popular political governance.

“Habito correlates economic principles usually found only in textbooks with everyday events that play out on the newspaper’s front pages or in its business section. He is, if you will, gifted in creating a confluence between the theoretical and the practical,” Inquirer president/CEO Sandy Prieto-Romualdez says in her foreword to the book.

Free to subscribers

Both e-books are free to digital subscribers of the all-titles “read-all-you-can” plans of the Inquirer Digital newsstand, which carries over 20 titles comprising the IGC’s roster of newspapers and magazines. (Download the iPad app at http://bit.ly/inq-digital-ios and http://bit.ly/inq-digital-android for Android-powered mobile devices.)

For inquiries, send e-mail to inquirerdigital@inquirer.com.ph or contact the Inquirer through Twitter on @inquirerdotnet and on Facebook (Philippine Daily Inquirer or Inquirer.net).

Both titles will also soon be available on other e-book websites, such as smartebook.com, a leading Asian e-book seller.

For traditionalists who prefer the look and feel of actual paper, physical books, or p-books, will also be available by year’s end.

The p-books, printed by Print Town, are priced at P550 each and are available from the Inquirer Corporate Marketing office. Contact Bianca Kasilag at bkasilag@inquirer.com.ph for more information. Home and office delivery is available through DAG, the IGC’s logistics and delivery arm, or copies may be picked up at Inquirer Classifieds branches.

The launch of the books is part of the IGC’s strategy of making its content available on all available touchpoints and formats.
