SMB Books FREE Sampler CD

Well, the SMB Community shines once again. We asked some of our authors to put together materials for us to distribute. The only requirement is that it be Truly Useful. We wanted to offer a free CD Sampler of the kinds of materials available at SMB Books.

We only included material that has real value right now.

Much of the material on this Sampler CD is not available anywhere else. The disc includes more than seven hours of audio and video training plus hundreds of pages of excellent content.

We are providing this CD Free as a way to showcase our authors -- and the great resources you'll find at

Note: The CD also contains our most recent catalog -- and that catalog includes a discount code for use at SMB Books.

Here's some of what you'll find on the CD:

Do we get carried away?

Oh Yeah!

I want to thank all the contributors to the SMB Sampler CD. They are true community members and are providing YOU with hundreds of dollars worth of valuable information here.

I also thank Lana Shurayev, our super-human admin, for spending so much time collecting, formatting, and coding this CD. She's awesome.

Thank them for their efforts.

Now, how do you get this massive collection of goodness?

We will ship it free for the asking. No you can't download it. It's about 400 MB and I'm just not doing that.

Here's what you do:
- Go to the Request Page.
- Fill out the form. You must give us your shipping information in order to receive the CD
- Put "Sampler CD" in the box labeled "Products You Want"

- If you have an address that does not lend itself to our US-centric form, please email us with the exact address information and format. You still need to fill out the form!

Please be patient. The CDs will ship immediately (the next business day). But we expect a high demand.
