    This is easily the most comprehensive book on ebook publishing.

The book functions both as a tool for understanding the current state of the publishing industry and a how-to for aspiring self publishers. David's writing offers a very fair opinion and good insight into the publishing world in an extremely accessible voice. I blew through this in two days.
