Different Format, But Great
This is the first iBook I've come across that maintains the formatting and two-page spreads. It works really well, plus Bryans tips and instruction is awesome. I thought I knew a lot about photography, but I'm realizing from this book that I still have much to learn. So even if you're an experienced photog, you can learn from this book. Plus his example pictures are inspiring me to look at my photography in a new way.
The book is great however it is NOT iOS 5 compatible
Download the sample to see that the format will not work with iOS 5 iBooks. The book worked fine with iOS 4.X, but when iOS 5 came out the format got stuck in landscape mode. You must zoom in and out to read the book. Not too mention that not all the pictures will load. I have brought this to the attention of Apple CS as well as the Publisher. iTunes CS will not issue a refund as it is against their ToS. The publisher has yet to get back with me. Before you pay any money for this book (which was great under iOS 4.X) download the sample to see for yourself that it does not format correctly.
The only reason it gets 2 stars is because it worked great under the previous operating system and is a great book when it worked.
