I’m happy to announce that the updated version of my book, “Enterprise Mobility Management: Everything you need to know about MDM, MAM, and BYOD,” is now ready! This book is an in-depth examination of the mobility topics I cover here at Brian Madden.com, and is available in the Amazon Kindle format.

What's new in the 2014 Edition? The first version of this book came out right after Apple announced iOS 7, but before we knew many details. Now that iOS 7 has been released, I've updated the book to include all the new management options. iOS 7 also sparked discussion about the evolution of both platform-based and third-party mobile app management, so there's a lot of new material covering that, too. There are plenty of other updates, and overall the book is now a bit longer.

I can't overstate how happy I am with the response to this book. It has six 5-star reviews for at Amazon.com, and I've received a lot of great feedback and complements about it. A big thank you goes to everyone in the community for that!

How to get this book

The 2014 Edition of "Enterprise Mobility Management" is available in several ways:

The Amazon Kindle version. (Remember, you don't have to have a Kindle device to read Kindle books. They have apps for iOS and Android, or you can read Kindle books directly from a browser.)

If you already purchased the Kindle version, an update will be available for free. However you will have to wait a little bit, since apparently it takes four weeks for everything to work its way completely through Amazon's system. Once it does, though, you can log into Amazon, go to "Manage Your Kindle," and then look for "Update Available" next to the book title in your Kindle Library. (If you're buying the book for the first time, you won't have to worry about this—it's just a quirk with the way Amazon handles updating existing copies.)

If you purchased a physical copy of the original book from Amazon.com, you can also download the Kindle version for free, thanks to Amazon's new Kindle MatchBook program. So even though the physical copy is the old version, you can have the new content, too. This version will still be available for another month or two, until supplies run out.

Finally, Dell Software will be giving away free physical copies of the new 2014 Edition next week at Dell World 2013 in Austin, Texas. I'll be in the Dell Software booth on Thursday, December 12, at 11:30am and 2:30pm signing copies. If you happen to be at the show, come on by and pick one up!
