In MEAP, the Manning Early Access Program, you are purchasing a book before it's complete. We offer the following options for returning or exchanging a MEAP.

Within 30 days of purchase, you may exchange a MEAP for any other Manning eBook or MEAP of similar value. If you pre-ordered a print copy, we will ship that print copy immediately or, if it's in MEAP, as soon as it becomes available.

If we cancel a book in MEAP, you may exchange it for any other book or request a refund of your purchase price.

From time to time books in MEAP proceed more slowly than expected. In such cases, we may offer you the opportunity to exchange your book outside the ordinary 30-day window.

Sales of published (non-MEAP) downloadable products are not eligible for refund or exchange.
