The Take control books are popular and now there is one to help you learn more about Scrivener. This is written by Kirk McElhearn
Scrivener is the writers application that I use just about every day. I find it really good for organising my writing work for all my web sites and for the articles that I write for the revenue sharing sites like InfoBarrel. There is a help file with the application but now you can get an eBook which show you more things that you might perhaps be struggling with.
Naturally if I am recommending Scrivener then I am happy to recommend this too. The ‘Take Control’ series of books are well know for having good explanations of software.
