I’m in the process of making an electronic version (e-book) of Beyond the Leadership Myth. I’ve been at it for about two weeks now. My main hurdle is getting the text reader-friendly for e-readers such as Kindle. It’s surprisingly difficult, mainly because my book contains a lot of footnotes/endnotes as well as pictures. The pictures I’ve dealt with by removing them completely or by converting them to a better format.
The footnotes/endnotes tend to break up the flow of the text in certain e-readers such as Kindle Fire for example. On other readers, however, such as on an I-pad, it looks fine. Unfortunately, there’s not much I can do about it. I can’t remove the footnotes/endnotes from the text, and I can’t change the way certain e-readers present them. This annoys me but in the end, it won’t change the information presented in the book.
Once the book is launched, it will be available for free during a short period of time. I hope that will result in more people discovering the fascinating topic of collaborationship.
