An essential book to have

This is a must have book for any writer who is serious about creating iBooks. It clearly and simply explains the 'how and whys' of making your book accessible to ALL your readers. All iBooks should be accessible on ethical and inclusive perspectives. It also makes great commercial sense as well as around 15-20% of the population having some form of disability. Do yourself a favor and read this brilliant book.
