Shameless plug for the authors website
I didn't find this book very insightful into self publishing. The author created a website (albeit very nice looking) and is using this book to drive authors to it. The author walks you through the process of writing your book on his web site and then says make one or two selections and we'll post it to the iBookstore for you. Course that convenience will cost you an additional X% of your sales.
A users manual
This is essentially a user's manual for the fastpencil publishing service but has some useful info on iPad iBook publishing as well as POD print publishing.
The sample isn't really a sample, since it doesn't go beyond the intro, so there's no telling what the book is like. The title purports to tell you how to put a book together for the iPad, however, including appearance, and the cover has parts of some of the words cut off.
