I am so pleased to announce that my friend and podcasting partner David Sparks has released his third book The MacSparky Paperless Field Guide. David and I have chatted about the idea of self-publishing books and his "field guide" series for a while and when iBook Author was announced he knew it was the perfect platform for this topic and I was honored to be a part of David's "beta test" group. Calling this a "book" doesn't quite seem right. It's really an interactive experience that includes text, interactive images, movies, screencasts and more all done in classic MacSparky style.
David's book covers all the basics of a paperless lifestyle including over 1.5 hours of screencasts with best practices and tutorials lovingly crafted into a beautiful iBooks experience for the iPad. The book is a bargain at only $4.99 and I hope it is the first of many more to come.
I'm thrilled to see that after only one day on the market David's book has quickly risen to the top of the iTunes technology charts and is at the time of this posting one of the top 10 iBooks overall!
Congratulations, my friend! Well deserved.
