    I've been using Markdown for over a year, but the extra tips in this book (especially for MultiMarkdown) are invaluable. Well worth the money whether you're getting started in Markdown or just want to refine your workflow!

    I have to be honest, I never saw the point of Markdown - I don't write blogs or publish to the web: until recently, when I had to write a big report. I drafted it on my iPad in multimarkdown ( in Byword ); finessed it on my MacBook (in Multimarkdown Composer) then exported it as an rtf to my boss who uses a corporate windows laptop. Who then pasted it into his report in Microsoft Word. Who then got really big congratulations from the REALLY big boss for such a quick turnaround. Thank you David Sparks & Eddie Smith

    I develop an app that uses Markdown, and will now be recommending this to my users as an approachable and useful guide to the Markdown language.
