Quick Review: Instant Apple iBooks How-to


There has been many times when a tool comes out and the only documentation on the subject is found on blogposts and Youtube videos. This is a great way to learn but sometimes its best to have a nice concise go to resource that will help step through everything with you. The book Instant Apple iBooks is just that.

This book was a relatively short read. For the price you really cannot go wrong. At the time of this post you can purchase the book for $2.54. This book steps you through not only how to consume iBooks but also how to create them. This is a great resource for educators and administrators as a one stop shop to learn the ins and outs of iBooks.

Here is the table of contents outlining what the book has to offer:

  • Preface
