You could try looking for an eBook version on Amazon. Their 
kindle app is very accessible and easy to use. It saved my life a 
couple of times when I had school books I couldn't find anywhere 
else. Also, I'm wondering if your phone has a lot of stuff on it. 
Maybe it doesn't have enough storage for iBooks to load? If you 
think this could be the case, maybe try deleting some stuff.

HTH,
Sophie

I'm using adobe digital editions 2.0 and have no problem in terms 
of
accessibility.
Now the 3.0 version is available, probably better.
It just took some time for me to get used to it.
I can easily jump up the page that I need. Beyond, if I stop 
reading
for example at page 111 and close the book or the program, I'll 
see
the same page when I reopen it.
However, still prefer a word document.
Anyway this give me freedom to buy most of the current books and 
read
without waiting for an accessible format.

 This is a longshot, but maybe try googling some text of the book 
and you may
 find a PDF of it. Also if you haven't try learning Ally.

 If you can find it as e-book to buy, you can open with Adobe 
Digital
 Editions.
 epub format is accessible and some pdf books are also 
accessible.

 Hi all,

 One of my instructors in college wants me to read Mind Gym: An
 Athlete's Guide to Inner Excellence.  Though this is for a music
 class, the idea behind it is that a lot of the same mental prep 
that
 athletes do before they compete is what musicians have to do 
before
 they perform.  My instructor wants me to read the book and take 
a few
 things away from it which I can use in performing.  Anyway, we 
have
 had significant trouble in finding the book.  I checked 
bookshare, and
 requested the book once I saw that it wasn't in the collection.  
I
 then ran into issues because it wasn't a textbook, and they 
couldn't
 varify whether or not I really needed it for school (even though 
I
 do).  I cannot find it through NLS.  I downloaded Overdrive 
Media
 Console onto my IPhone and don't see it there.  I did find it
 available in the ITunes store, but of course I did not already 
have
 IBooks, and when I tried to download the app it would not load 
past 40
 percent.  I've tried to get it to install repeatedly with the 
same
 results.

 Would anyone know of other sources I could use to locate this 
book, or
 how I can get IBooks to download all the way so I can buy the 
book
 there?
