You will have a choice of installing (Authorizing) your eBook with an Adobe ID or directly to a computer (or device); once this choice is made you cannot switch. We recommend that you install your eBook using an Adobe ID. This way you will be able to load your eBook on up to six different devices using the same Adobe ID. If you install directly to a computer, you will only be able to access your eBook on that one computer; to move to another computer or device will require the purchase of another eBook.
