I'm going to stick my neck out and say that this is the finest piece of software I have ever had the pleasure to review. I say that because the authors have taken what has been up to now a tedious and complex process to produce Magazines, newsletters, novels, textbooks, catalogs, brochures, portfolios, company manuals, financial reports and more and made it an astoundingly simple process producing highly professional results with Realistic 3D page-flipping which gives you a natural and intuitive viewing experience
