i know how to use word; i don't need 120 pages and a 25 minute long youtube video to explain how to do bookmarks. i get that some people do but for me, this book's contrived folksiness doesn't make up for the fact that's it's too long. also, seems like the only advice to fix epub issues is know html or start over. the book is free and it's written by the ceo or owner so i thought it would be more straight forward (read: more succinct for people who have other things to do). this book is worth 3 stars because i'm sure it's helped others. it loses 2 stars for this repeated phrase: Hug a loved one. that's an awful and not terribly inspiring thing to read in an instruction manual (3 times, btw)
ps. amazon's book on the same subject, Building Your Book for Kindle, is about 30 pages long.
