Details about downloading and Young’s EBook About Healing (YEAH):
YEAH is only designed to be experienced using a real Adobe PDF Reader. This will allow the internal links to work properly, and just as importantly, it will allow you to press Alt-LeftArrow to go back to previously read pages in order. That important feature will not work if you just read YEAH through your Internet browser.
Once you have downloaded YEAH, no Internet connection is required to read it using the Adobe PDF Reader, as it has no external links.
The instructions on the Home Page should work with any browser, and they are designed to avoid calling up YEAH in your browser itself -- they key is to save the file and call it up with the Adobe PDF Reader.
I recommend making Adobe your default PDF reader because the PDF readers built into browsers generally range from buggy to inoperable when you try to use them to read YEAH. When you install the Adobe PDF Reader, you have the option to make it your default reader.
If you have the Adobe PDF Reader already and it ISN’T your default PDF reader, you can change your machine’s settings to make it the default reader. This would be done through Control Panel on Windows machines. Machines can be set up differently, so I can’t provide tech support for individual cases to make that happen. Perhaps you could talk to someone you know who knows all about computers, like (probably) your kids or grandkids to find out how to make that change.
I wish that browsers had accurate PDF readers built in because it could be more convenient for you to just read YEAH in a browser. However, they don’t, and I can’t provide “tech support” if you just try to read YEAH in a browser instead of using a real Adobe PDF Reader because I can’t fix the bugs in the browsers’ internal PDF readers! If you don’t have the real Adobe PDF Reader, please get it and then follow the instructions below.
If you received YEAH as an email attachment:
1. Click on the YEAH.PDF attachment.
2. When asked to Run, Save or Cancel, either:
(a) Click Save to store YEAH.PDF if your default download area. If you aren’t sure where that is, use (b) below.
(b) Click the arrow to the right of Save to show a Save As option and select the Save As option. You can then select exactly where you want to save YEAH.PDF. Call it up from that location using the Adobe PDF Reader.
In either case above, if you’ve chosen the Adobe PDF Reader as your default PDF file reader (which I recommend), you can just click on the file and it will appear in the Adobe PDF Reader. If you aren’t sure what your default PDF reader is, click on YEAH.PDF and whatever your default reader is will display it.
If you use Internet Explorer 11.0:
Note: Microsoft is discontinuing support for IE as of January 2020.
Follow the instructions on the Home Page. Be sure to download the Adobe PDF Reader if you haven’t done so already, then RIGHT-CLICK the YEAH link and select “Save target as” from the menu that appears. If you CLICK instead of RIGHT-CLICK the YEAH link, YEAH will appear on your screen, but in most cases, you will have issues with Alt-LeftArrow taking you out of YEAH completely instead of back to where you came from, as would be the case with an Adobe reader. In extreme cases, clicking the link could “hang” your IE session and make you use Task Manager to kill the session.
If you use Microsoft Edge:
Follow the instructions on the Home Page. Be sure to download the Adobe PDF Reader if you haven’t done so already, then RIGHT-CLICK the YEAH link and select “Save target as” from the menu that appears. If you CLICK instead of RIGHT-CLICK the YEAH link, you will be “on Edge” in more ways than one. YEAH will appear on your screen, but in most cases, you will have issues with Alt-LeftArrow taking you out of YEAH completely instead of back to where you came from, as would be the case with an Adobe reader. The text may also “jump” a page or so past your intended target for no apparent reason. This is a bug in the current version of Edge as of 11/14/2019.
If you use another browser:
Follow the instructions to save the YEAH.PDF file, then use the Adobe PDF Reader when you want to read YEAH.
This page may be updated in the future if there are common issues with a different browser.
Adobe has PDF readers for Windows, Apple, Linux and Android devices, so you should be able to read and enjoy YEAH on any of them.
