Option 1

The books will be supplied on a USB 3.0 flash drive. The price is $30 for all three books (plus tax and international shipping if applicable).

It is recommended you transfer the books to your computer. You can also or read the books directly from the USB drive but Volumes 1 and 2 will load much faster if you put them on your computer.
