The author is very generous in sharing his considerable expertise with the bonus of additional free resources, including various YouTube videos (mentioned in Appendix B) and the developers’ area on his company’s website - I found the templates particularly useful to get started with valid XML samples and a correct layout. Whilst the guide only covers up to EPUB 2 (and certainly it would be good to see an update covering version 3), the principles are well-established so anyone who has digested the knowledge here would be well-equipped to make the necessary adjustments.
If hand coding a web page in HTML is a forbidding prospect, then this might not be the right book, but otherwise I recommend it as a thorough introduction and reference manual. I really enjoyed it.
The best book of this type I've seen. Though be warned that Paul's approach (which, essentially, is the one I use myself and recommend) is to strip manuscript text down to plain html and build up from there. If your requirements are very basic and undemanding, some authors are happy with simpler approaches, such as uploading word processor manuscript files.
Also, Paul's book is up to date where so many equivalent books are obsolete. (There's no ePUB3 description in detail, but then support is fragmentary at present)
