You will also receive a confirmation email of your order, with a link at the bottom to take you back to your account in our online store at You can click the link to return to your account at our online store, and then click on "My Account" in the top right corner. After logging in, click on "Review orders" in the "My Orders" section. That will take you to a download link for your eBook.

     Direct the download to a convenient place on your computer, e.g., the desktop or a Nolo folder.
