Arbortext 101, first retail book about Arbortext published

SUNNYVALE, CA. - August 10, 2016 - Single-Sourcing Solutions CEO, Elizabeth Fraley, published the first retail book about the Arbortext product set. Only one other retail book has mentioned Arbortext before this, a book by JoAnn Hackos. "JoAnn's book is excellent," Fraley said. "But it really only used Arbortext in the examples in her book about DITA. It was really a book about DITA." This book is the first book about Arbortext ever published commercially.

The book was written and published using Arbortext tools. Her easy-to-follow approach offers practical tips and pointers enabling readers to quickly get started developing dynamic and multi-channel content using Arbortext.

Early reviews are overwhelmingly positive:

"I've long been frustrated by the difficulty in getting good, unbiased information about the Arbortext Editor and related products. Ms. Fraley has created an invaluable resource for consultants, evaluators, and implementors of Arbortext Editor. I particularly enjoyed Ms. Fraley's clear writing and conversational style. Beginners can appreciate the book's clear step-by-step instructions, while frequent "Expert tips" provide best practices and advice for more advanced users. I can't wait to read Ms. Fraley's next book, "Arbortext 102: Best Practices for Creating Arbortext Styler Stylesheets", and I hope Ms. Fraley writes and publishes more books to cover the entire Arbortext family of products." ~ Alan Houser, Group Wellesley

Fraley thinks it's telling that the only 4-star review comes from one of her competitors. "There's never been a book about Arbortext," said Fraley, "PTC and it's partner companies have held that learning close to and justify their high services costs. They forget: Many of them were once users and that, like anything else, this too can be learned. I wrote this book to bust those myths wide open because at Single-Sourcing Solutions, we want our customers to grow strong and independent."

This book has been tested with Single-Sourcing Solutions customers and rated highly by them.

The book will be available on Amazon in both print and electronic publication.
