Rushed (updated review)
Decent intro resource which was rushed and unreadable upon first release, with even a typo on the front cover. These layout problems have now been addressed, but oddities still remain:
- why are Bookry and SketchUp (both third party companies) mentioned, while Hype and BookWidgets (equal if not superior iBA resources) not? Why are the iBooks Author Certification Program and iBooks Author Conference, both widely-known best-in-class iBooks Author resources, not mentioned? Minus a star for Apple playing favorites in ways that don't best serve the iBooks Author user base.
- Apple could have had video and far more interactivity here. Missed opportunity.
Consider this an option for beginners.
