CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Feb. 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- MIT Press is pleased to announce the launch of the MIT Press BITS series. MIT Press BITS are short digital excerpts from books in selected areas of intellectual inquiry. The series launches with 50 BITS on subjects ranging from robotics to architecture, from psychoanalysis to game studies.
BITS are carefully chosen from both classic MIT Press titles and recent releases. They are 1-3 chapters in length. BITS are offered in subject area groupings, a mixture of the classic, cutting-edge, and quirky. At launch, the BITS topics are: Architecture in Search of Itself, Buddhism and the Brain, Classics, Consciousness, Energy, Free Will, Gaming Experience, Memory, Sustainability, and Women in Technology.
"Each BIT provides a taste of the feast that is MIT Press content," says Katie Hope, MIT Press marketing director. "They are DRM free, readable on any screen, and priced from $2.99-$4.99. BITS allow readers to satisfy their curiosity about an author or topic they recognize or to discover entirely new work. We see BITS as an innovative pathway for the exploration of ideas."
A few examples of BITS include:
MIT Press BITS stand alone and can be read on their own, but they may also serve as an entry point to the full-length book. For readers who want to keep reading, each purchaser of an MIT Press BIT will receive a discount code (good on the MIT Press website only) for 40% off the price of the entire book in e- or print form.
