Since the time that books were scrolls, most of them were sequential devices, intended to be read from beginning to end.
- It's one of the first ebooks I've written as an ebook, rather than converting an already-existing printed book.
- It has color and hyperlinks and is searchable.
- I didn't have to be conscious of the number of pages I wrote because it costs nothing to print each page.
- It doesn't cost extra to include color images.
- The selling price has nothing to do with the production cost or shipping cost. An ebook with 1,000 pages is no heavier or bulkier than one with 32 pages.
- While I wrote the ebook with a beginning and an end, you can start reading anywhere. You are free to choose a topic from the table of contents, or by searching for a specific term, or you can just keep swiping your finger across the screen and stop at something that interests you.
- Rather than trying to monopolize your time and attention, I’ve provided lots of hyperlinks to send you into cyberspace for more information, opinions and entertainment.
- If you are reading where you have Internet access, the book functions more like a website -- or maybe like an old library's "card catalog" -- than a book. For better or for worse, your reading experience will be affected by the links you choose to follow -- not only by what I’ve written.
