Al Gore's Interactive Book for iPad- 'Our Choice'

BY EARTHFIRST

Al Gore's book 'Our Choice: A plan to solve the climate crisis' has now been created into an interactive book for the iPad. I'm only a couple of chapters in but already I can really appreciate the innovative approach to presenting otherwise static information. The book combines video, sound, interactive maps and makes the reading experience a whole lot more interesting than flipping through a book. I must admit that whilst I still prefer to read novels in the printed format, I think that there is a strong place for non-fiction books in the digital landscape. The experience is richer and multifaceted; allowing the reader to delve deeper into subject matters. Well worth the $4.99 cost, available from iTunes.
