Go Back and Forth Fast in Preview

If you're reading a PDF in Apple's Preview software, and you follow a bookmark or an internal link to move around within the PDF, you can quickly return to where you were by pressing the keyboard shortcut Command-[ (that's Command-Left Bracket). Or, you can choose Go > Back.

The command works iteratively, so you can go back to just the previously viewed page or if you issue the command again, to the page before that, and so on. There's also an equivalent Go > Forward (Command-]).

I have iBoos Author 1.0 installed on a Mac running 10.7.3. I am trying to deliver an .ibook file to iTunes but error says I need Author 1.1 but I have not been able to upgrade to i.1 because when I try to download 1.1 I'm kicked back to i.o and the "Install" button is greyed out and changed to "Installed" Wazzup?
