Thanks to all  for the vote of confidence..

Here is more details on the idea

ICANN has created introductory guidebooks for newcomers/ learners on
various aspects of the ICANN Ecospace. These materials are either limited
print format or on a non interactive PDF Format

This proposal suggests an updating of the materials to become E Book
resources for use on mobile, Kindle and other devices. Secondly the
material would take advantage of the add on feature of audio reading
capability providing audio transcription to the existing materials

Key Benefits


   Ebooks are searchable. You can easily search for any information in an
   ebook, instead of turning page after page.

   Ebooks can be interactive and contain audio, video and animations, which
   can enhance the message that the author is trying to convey.

   Subscribers to Ebooks get automatic notifications of updates for
   downloading so the most current versions are always available and

   Tracking of downloads and clicks throughs

   Free widescale distribution channels to distribute Ebooks ie. Google
   Play, Archive.org, Itunes, Amazon and more
