Adobe Digital Editions (ADE) was the tool Human Kinetics formerly used to provide ebooks prior to 2019. If you have an ADE ebook, it will still be available on the original device on which you downloaded it. To convert the ebook to the new VitalSource platform there will be a $3 fee for each ebook converted. Converting ebooks is optional and only related to those who have purchased ADE ebooks formerly on the HK website. To request that your ADE ebook be converted, please contact customer service.
