Great news, Dan!

I am really glad to hear that you decided to go that route after all. 
It surely offers the most flexibility for everyone and will be easier 
to maintain with future releases of Rev. I think it will actually 
broaden your audience: some veterans may not be interested in buying 
an intro book but they may want to get some ebooks on topics they 
haven't worked with yet.
