Our Frequently Asked Questions page is always growing as we do our best to answer questions that we commonly receive. However, if you don't find the answer you're looking for here, please contact us and we'll try to respond as promptly as possible.

Are the Uncle Eric books offered in other languages?
Not at this time. We have received offers over the years for translation rights. However, the reasons are several as to why the author and publisher have not acted on these offers. For example:
1. Great care was taken by Mr. Maybury in writing the Uncle Eric books to make them quick, easy to read, and clearly understandable, while at the same time dealing with complicated topics.
2. Mr. Maybury's vocabulary choices and Mr. Maybury's definitions of the vocabulary words chosen are essential to the reader's understanding of the Uncle Eric books.
With a foreign translation, we have no way to ensure that Mr. Maybury's careful selection of vocabulary and his carefully thought-out definitions would be translated exactly as Mr. Maybury intends. For example, consider the color blue. Varieties of color may differ in hue, brightness, shades, tints, etc., resulting in dark blue, light blue, baby blue, powder blue, navy blue (to name only a few).
Only in English can a reader be certain that if Mr. Maybury chose a word and subsequently defined that word, or explained a concept, it is precisely as Mr. Maybury intended, so that he and his readers can build from that understanding as they work through the Uncle Eric series.
What ages are your books designed for?
Our titles are designed to take what are often considered complex concepts and break them down into bite-size nuggets of easily digestible information, a format that has proven successful for students and adults of all ages.
To help with planning, we do include a recommended minimum age level in our product descriptions. We do encourage, however, that students who read the books at the youngest recommended age revisit the books when they are older as they will bring a higher level of understanding and comprehension to their study.
Remember, there is no age cap to these books. If you don’t remember it, never understood it, or never learned it, then you are never too old.
