Those of you who have been following me for a while will remember my Journey to Markdown series, where I decided to finally take the plunge and learn Markdown. While it wasn’t as harrowing a journey as I thought it might be, I definitely would have benefited from the latest MacSparky Field Guide™ simply titled Markdown.
Co-written by my friend David Sparks and fellow productivityist Eddie Smith, Markdown is a must-have guide for those wanting to get a handle on the most productive way to blog online. Sporting 130 pages and 27 screencasts (which total over 90 minutes of video), this guide is suitable for the person just starting to dip their toe in the waters to those who are swimming pretty well but want to start getting even more out of each and every stroke (read: yours truly). There’s also an additional hour of audio interviews with the likes of Merlin Mann, Brett Terpstra, Fletcher Penney, Gabe Weatherhead, Federico Viticci and more.
For just $9.99, you really can’t go wrong picking this guide up. You’ll save a ton of time for very little money. I’ve only started to make my way through the book (which was authored in iBooks Author, as all of the MacSparky Field Guides are) and I’m already expanding my Markdown knowledge significantly.
You can get more details on Markdown at the Markdown web page, purchase the iBooks version directly from here, or pick up the PDF here.
