I found this little booklet to be a pretty good tool for aiding me in the search for more information concerning e-book publishing. While I found it full of certain useful information concerning publishing, it didn't cover some of the pertinent information I was really looking for. This being said, it still covers a lot of useful information you may need. I found other books with clearer more precise information that I was looking for. That's why I can only give this book 3 star's. I'd give it just an average recommendation. :)
