We are creating Audiobooks and Podcasts of the books in our catalog. It is still a long and tedious process preparing a book and normally a long audiobook retails for $29.95. We are seeking donations through PayPal or go to patreon.com/usgovpub to become a Patron. Your generous donation will fund our mission and allow us to improve the final product. (The cost to fit out a studio has to come from somewhere).
We don't have any commercial sponsors yet, but must rely on PayPal donations and Patreon. Click on the red links below to get to the book then click on the title (not the little arrow in the circle) to see the audio player. We don't have the resources to convert all 1,300 books in our catalog to audio, and we don't know which books folks want on audio. So here is a small selection with a few chapters to give you an idea of what it will sound like. Become a Patreon sponsor today and let us know which titles you would like us to finish first.
A partial list of titles we are working on is shown below.
That can take hours and the result is not pretty. Our books are fully bound, so it's
easy to take along to a meeting and they take up less space on the shelf.
Most of our books are a full 8 1/2 by 11 inches with LARGE TEXT
Sometimes old documents are copied so many times, the images are useless. Whenever possible, we replace images from the original. If that's not possible, we replace it with a highly-detailed photograph. We also take the time to enlarge many of the diagrams and photos for your convenience.
Sometimes a larger, different angle photograph is helpful.
All our titles are available on Amazon.com, so you can buy with confidence. Simply go to Amazon.com and enter the Government publication number or name (for example: in the search bar, type "GAO-14-704G" or "Standards for Internal Control in the Federal Government" or common name "GAO Green Book"). Then, click "Add to Cart". It's that simple. Amazon will ship your copy quickly because we print-on-demand. Our titles are NEVER out of stock.
Yeah, we know. Government titles are available for free download in PDF (if you can find it), but then you gotta print it out. Not a problem if it's a few pages, but if it's 580 pages, do you really want to print it over the LAN? Then you gotta punch holes and stuff a big fat binder. We print these as a service. Since the book is in the public domain, we cannot copyright that content, but we include comments that are copyright. Not a lot of verbiage, just couple pages. Anyway, your time is valuable, so it's cheaper to just buy a copy from us.
Ours is a Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB).
