Apple’s much-hyped iBooks Author came out a while back, and Cupertino hopes the free app can become the iTunes for the self-publishing textbook world. Available solely through the Mac App Store at a healthy 320MB, I’ve been putting iBooks Author through its paces in the hopes that the interactive iBook will bring me some added sales of a recently self-published e-book. I wanted to get this review out sooner, but you can’t really know how well this program works unless you actually have something to publish. A bird’s-eye view of a publishing tool doesn’t do it justice—you have to use it in production to really see its strengths and weaknesses.
