If you click on the eBook full text link, but can only see the first page of the book with no option to move forward -- the problem has to do with your internet browser, the 64-bit version of Internet Explorer.

Adobe Reader, the program for viewing PDFs, is a 32-bit only plugin, and therefore starts to act strangely when used with IE (64-bit).

The good news is that there are 2 easy fixes!

1.  Switch to the 32-bit version of Internet Explorer.  You should have both versions already installed on your computer, if you're using Windows 7.  Go to Start>All Programs to find the other version of IE.

2.  Just switch to a completely different browser, such as:  Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox.
