I went to my Cisco Press account today and found that my digital versions have been updated with ePub formats. Check this :
Once it’s installed on the iPad, it’s look pretty good.
This page has both code and an image and it’s really good reading. I haven’t used it long enough to decide if the PDF version in GoodReader is better than the ePub but I’ve found the iBook reader to be an excellent way to read books.

So this means that I bought the PDF versions and have automatically received the ePub version which is good news. (Although O’Reilly have done that for all of their textbooks, and release updates to them as errata gets fixed).
On the whole, this is a real step forward by Pearson Education to deliver their content in formats that we can really use.
