Some readers have downloaded “The Anarchist’s Tool Chest” and have asked how to then get it on their iPad or iPhone. The process is manual, but it is easy and quick. Here’s a short tutorial.
1. Find the file named “ATC.epub.” It will probably be in your “Downloads” folder. If you can’t find it that way, try searching your computer for that file.
2. Open the file in iTunes. There are two easy ways to do this. You can simply drag the “ATC.epub” file over the iTunes icon and drop it. That will open iTunes and import the file into iTunes.
The other way to do this is to first launch iTunes, then go to File/Add to Library. That will open a dialog box that will allow you to navigate to your “Downloads” folder or wherever you have put the ATC.epub file. Once you find it, click on “Open” and it will bring the book into iTunes.
3. Connect your iPhone or iPad to your computer. Your device will then show up in the left sidebar of iTunes. Click on your device and navigate to the “Books” section of your device. You should see “The Anarchist’s Tool Chest” there and be able to click the box below it. Then sync your device and you will be ready to read the book in the iBooks app.

Where do International Customers download the ePub ATC from?
You can send $16 U.S. to email@example.com and he will send you the epub file.
Wow. Apple tech support + hand tools techniques.
I like the epub option, but already own this book – do you plan on making any of the other books in epub form?
It really depends on the author. I am happy to have all my books available in ePub form, but out other authors might feel differently and we won’t force them into it.
So right now we’re checking with our authors to gauge their opinions.
I did this, but I don’t appear to get any pictures displayed on my ipad. Or, at the beginning of each chapter I’m seeing a little blue box with a question mark in it. I assume this is supposed to be a picture. I’m using the latest version of the OS.
Nice! Now my book can sit and not get dirty…
So, next can you tell me how to add the DVD to my iPad so that I’ll have a complete life?
Mike, seek out a program called HandBrake. That is the way to salvation. Or damnation. Depending on your viewpoint.
Is it possible to purchase this from overseas? I went through the process but it appears as though the only country available is the US which means my credit card is declined because the address doesn’t match.
Yes. Send $16 U.S. via PayPal to firstname.lastname@example.org. He’ll get you the file promptly.
Awesome. Thanks for the quick reply.
Is there a way to load the epub without syncing to Itunes on the computer?
