PressBooks is a simple book publishing tool (freemium service and open source plugin): put your book content into PressBooks, choose a book design theme, and export into: ebooks format (for Kindle, iBooks, Nook, Kobo and others), typeset PDF (for print-on-demand and other uses), more exotic XML formats. PressBooks is used by authors and publishers around the world.

WordPress is the world's most popular CMS and blogging tool.

Together they represent a new way to author, design, and produce books (electronic and print).

I'll cover (and attempt to live demo) how to install, configure, and customize the open source plugin. For those less adventurous, I'll briefly cover use of the freemium PressBooks.com.

I'll also briefly cover alternatives such as Anthologize.
