What the MultiTouch Revolution is all about!

This is a delight. The multimedia elements add a depth to Joyce's stories that expands our understanding of the text. The student video introductions and their essays following each story fill us with hope that a bright and insightful generation will keep great art alive as we move into the brave new world of the pervasive mobile platform. Kudos to all involved in this project. And kudos to Apple for providing the iBooks Author multimedia publishing platform.

Incredible Resource

This is an incredible resource for first-time readers of Joyce and veteran Joycean scholars alike! I’m thrilled to have this text at my disposal during the academic year and I think my high school students will greatly appreaciate the amassed supplemental information alongside the original text. Fabulous job, easy interface, visually pleasing, and engaging analysis.
