I find Amazon offering this one for free very ironic: the Kindle does not support EPUB 3: it is, for example, used for Apple’s (and others’) eBook software.  Is this a hint of things to come?

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

What is EPUB 3 discusses the exciting new format that is set to unleash a content revolution in the publishing world. Laden with features the printed page could never offer–such as embedded multimedia and scripted interactivity–EPUB 3 will forever change what a book can be. This article walks you through the format and puts it in its place in the digital landscape, explaining why EPUB 3 is set to become the new global standard for ebooks as it also becomes the new accessible standard for ebooks.
