Not if you saw what it (and most books) actually look like when it’s stripped down into ePub format. The iBookstore is for books that are heavy in text, and not suited to publications of this type. This format gives you a substantially better reading experience, and it’s free.

Love the new color scheme!
Thanks for this - well done as usual.  And it looks great on my iPad as a PDF in GoodReader.

Wow, the *5th* edition already?  Man, time flies around here!

These guides are always outstanding.

Thanks, guys.  Keep up the great work.

P.S.  Bring back the podcasts!  iLounge has such a wealth of knowledge of all things pod/pad/phone.  A roundtable discussion by the editors once a month or so would be fantastic.
