This book introduces an R package, bookdown, to change your workflow of writing books.

With bookdown,

- It should be technically easy to write a book,

- visually pleasant to view the book,

- fun to interact with the book,

- convenient to navigate through the book,

- straightforward for readers to contribute or leave feedback to the book author(s),

- and more importantly, authors should not always be distracted by typesetting details.


Despite the package name containing the word “book”, bookdown is not only for books.

The “book” can be anything that consists of multiple R Markdown documents meant to be read in a linear sequence, such as course handouts, study notes, a software manual, a thesis, or even a diary.
