Since I subscribed to Adobe's Creative Suite in the summer of 2012 I've been determined to learn more about digital publishing and interactive books. In February 2013 I was looking at what was on the market. I found this book and Pariah Burke's ePublishing with InDesign CS6. The Cohen and Burns book seemed to have little in it beyond screen shots of various InDesign menus. In other words, it looked as though it would do little more than walk you through InDesign. Whereas Burke's book seemed to dig deeply into the nature of digital publishing. I put this one back on the shelf and purchased Burke.
I found that Burke was what I had expected in regard to defining the formats and walking you fairly deeply into the process (going into detail with Adobe's DPS, for instance) but was otherwise overly optimistic about the current state of digital publishing (just because it can be done doesn't mean anyone's actually supporting it). So I began to browse the selection at Amazon. Judging by the table of contents Cohen and Burns' book looked as though it covered some of what Burke missed. Unfortunately, once I had the book in hand and started reading it, I found that it was as shallow as I had anticipated. Most of what I thought might be covered turned out, repeatedly, to be "beyond the scope of this book".
I'm giving this book an extra star for those two pages of very valuable insight as to the current state of the world of digital publishing, in which they go into detail as to what isn't actually supported (for instance, even though most tablets read PDF files they do not recognize the interactive features such as sound and buttons...or the fact that EPUB 3.0 allows multi-media but very few online sellers distribute it). Photocopy those two pages (224-225), then buy Burke.
If you have used other versions of InDesign and are not familiar with the new capabilities of CS6, this book clearly explains the differences, which was a big deal for me. I was using CS5 before upgrading to CS6 recently and I had *no idea* just how much InDesign had improved for dealing with going from print to ePub.
Each topic begins with a concise but complete overview of the topic before giving thorough details about individual features and tasks. The book provides a very good entry for those who are new to digital publishing or are migrating from traditional print and/or web design.
I've used Sandee Cohen's other books in many of my computer classes and my students love them, keeping them for handy reference when they return to their workplace.
If you're new to ePublications and want a non-intimidating guide, this is the book to get.
