Ali Julia review
Make no mistake – the topic of formatting e-books for 30 or 40 different devices is an incredibly messy and complex problem, complete with endless numbers of picky details that mean the difference between formatting success and abject failure.
This book is not an easy read, but I think it is as good as any book could be for this topic. I couldn't think of anything major that I could suggest to make the book better, for example.
Credit to the author for wrestling with such a complex, messy problem for so many years, and for maintaining this book as best he has done.
I particularly enjoyed the authors comments (based on his own experience, and that of others) on the economics of being self published writer in the modern Internet world.
Some of the bottom-line messages that I gained from the book where these: get used to the idea that you will only earn pocket change as a book writer; convert your Microsoft Word documents using KindleGen version 1.2; don't bother publishing anywhere else but on Amazon KDP unless you really want to, because it it's too much work, too costly, and produces only 1/10 of the sales that you might get on KDP.
I would recommend this book to any Ebook author who wants to save time and learn more about the e-book publishing process.
