Easy web interface.

Pressbooks is simple online book writing software — for publishers, authors and editors. It's the best way to make a book. Pressbooks gives you complete control over workflow and updates. You can import from other formats such as a Word document or your blog. Or, you and any contributors can collaborate directly in Pressbooks. You just set-up the information about your book, add or import your content, and export. Need to update the content in your book? No problem. Typo? Fix it and re-export. Forgot to add the Dedication? Add it and export again.
