“Take Control of Pages” Adds Lists, Sections, and Tables of Contents
We have now posted the second significant update to our “Take Control of Pages” pre-book at Leanpub. The update, available for free to purchasers of the pre-book, offers a new chapter on organizing your work by using sections, tables of contents, and list styles, including how to use list styles to create headings in structured documents. Subsequent free updates to the pre-book will include chapters on layout tools, file exporting, templates, and using objects in Pages documents.
Just a thought, but donning my flame proof jumpsuit anyway: Considering that this is a vaporous book, how about charging less than $15 for those willing to, essentially, invest in the possibility of the book? I personally see nothing attractive about this situation, as is. I've personally been burned by similar situations in the past and am reluctant to participate again.
Virtual, perhaps, but hardly vaporous: the book already comprises over 140 pages, 90 figures, and more than 34,000 words. I've delivered two update installments to the original release already, and am working on the third (or would be if I weren't responding to this comment at the moment ?).
Nor would the book cost you $15: as a TidBITS member, you can purchase it at a 30% discount.
Furthermore, when you purchase a book through Leanpub you can get a complete refund for 45 days from the date of purchase, so there's pretty much no risk of getting burned.
And further yet, we have always offered a full satisfaction guarantee with all of our books, regardless of anything else.
Put simply, we wouldn't have done the book in this fashion if we weren't entirely comfortable that we'd be able to deliver.
