    I can do an iBook The iBook application from Apple is one of the least “apple like” apps I’ve had the misfortune to use. The interface is a bit kludgy and it’s cranky about certain things. After struggling with it twice, I bought this book on my Kindle and started to read through it. I wont say the heavens opened up but the light certainly went on. The book is laid out well and clearly written even though the material is a bit dull and technical. With this book in my hand, I managed to get my own book project under control and within the week of owning this book, mine was well on it’s way. And in the correct format too. At this point, my book is a week away from being submitted to Apple and it is because of this author. I was able to work out that I needed yet another iTunes account in spite of having one for my normal use, one for my IOS app dev projects and a spare I acquired with all this iCloud stuff. I worked out the bits and pieces I needed to get done including being approved by Apple to submit as a content provider to the Apple store. The author also gave me the heads up for the preview copy I need and other bits and pieces.Over all this is an excellent book to have in your hand when starting your own iBook project. Well done.Update 11-12-12 I submitted my new iBook to Apple using this book as my guide. My came back approved by with no changes needed. Well Done. The book was worth every penny :)
