To prove that the process works the author tells us that the book we are reading was generated by his process.
The author asks will my eBook look like a $1,000 formatting job when I get done? He answers, it depends. Could it be amazing? Most certainly. Could it look bad? Most definitely.

I give this eBook a Four Star Review but it is one that any newbie in publishing will do well to have. I bought it and found it very useful.
This is a short guide, with no fluff and all information. It even gives a concise list on the best way to format a Word document during the writing process, which makes the ebook formatting even faster and easier.
I am grateful he took the time to put this out for the rest of us. It has finally pulled me out of the endless searching for yet another way to format without tearing my hair out. Bravo!
Per the author's comment below, I finally figured out how to use the "send to Kindle" with Word 2007 documents, and it seems to work pretty well. I haven't tried with a document with a table of contents yet.
