In a way, this book’s title is misleading. It covers a LOT more than formatting. “Everything you need to know about publishing e-books” is closer. For example, title, cover, marketing, and pricing are essential considerations for any book. Susan Stewart gives advice on each.
This is not a book to read, but an instruction manual to use, a cookbook for self-publishing if you like. Susan has been running courses on this topic, and the book is obviously a distillation of her notes to students.
All the same, it is readable, clear in most places, and concise. I found a few places too dense, but I took a breath, and re-read the passages. In a cookbook, this is acceptable.
I’ve “been there, done that, got the T-shirt” for the content of this book, but all the same, learned several tricks and techniques, so I am glad I decided to review it.
