I highly recommend "Digging into Wordpress" by Chris Coyier & Jeff Star
both the blog and their book - which is available in PDF
or hard copy -

I don't know about the software part but if you are looking for a
publisher and can't invest a lot of money, try I believe you can
run copies as you need them

* Hello all.
* We have a project to help some libraries in poor schools . We will get
* some used computers for internal use and we will provide web hosting
* their own domains. We are installing wordpress for them to use it on the
* hosting we have.
* 1) Besides the documentation on the WP website. Can you recommend some
* material for a "quick immersion" on how to use WP?. Not the so basic
* We already got some theme for them and they will be using them and the
* idea is that they can do the webpages they need, more complex than the
* ones provided by the theme. That way they can be independent from our
* support.
* 2) Some of the teachers of those schools want to donate their time and
* some books so the schools can try to sell them online. Can you share
* experiences on this? I mean. We know they can use word or any suite
* and then convert it to PDF but we are looking for something more
* professional. The idea is to help them to do all the process required
* having the book until publish it on Amazon, Playstore, Apple store and
* other we can find. We know that maybe is something that will give no
* at all but with help us at all on what they have to learn. From using
* correct tools for do the search of the material on the Internet, the
tools to
* write it and from that we all learn on what tools to use to publish it,
* the image of it, maybe it is necessary to register it officially? and
then do the
* process to publish it on the market websites. They also will use the WP
* to promote the material.
* We have found some references of people that sells "all the tips and
trick to
* publish ebooks and became millionaire" but they are expensive since our
* budget is less than zero.
* As always thanks in advance for all your help.
