An Introduction to Creating Ebooks for the iPad
Publisher: O'Reilly Media / Tools of Change
Final Release Date: February 2012
Pages: 108

iBooks Author is the first tool of its kind. Never before have publishers, authors, and content creators had a tool for making dynamic, interactive ebooks in a WYSIWYG environment. This book is intended to get you up and writing in iBooks Author. You’ll learn what to expect from this new tool and what its strengths and limitations are. You’ll see how you can create beautifully designed pages and how you can bring those designs to life with interactive content in ways that, before now, were only possible in a web browser on the Internet. You’ll also find out how to navigate the occasionally tricky terrain of Apple’s ecosystem so that you can get your book published to the iBookstore.

      I used this tutorial to learn how to use iBooks Author. It was a great introduction to the program. It is sometimes hard to understand without having the application open and following along.

          As a user of InDesign you will recognize the way of working, but building a digital document requires some other operations. This book covers the depth of the iBook Author software, making you a power user and makes you produce the iBook you want.

                I have tried other books and tutorials. None are this informative . The subjects I needed to know about were in the advanced categories. This was the only book that addressed my concerns. Thank you!!! I am very thankful that you made it available.

                      I read this book before beginning with iBooks Author. Not only did it give me a great foundation for using the program, but I also have found myself referring to it when I get stumped along the way. Very useful. Now we just need an advanced users guide.
