If your lynda.com membership includes them I've put together a collection of exercise files that you could use to learn about iPhoto books. Now these are some of my personal photos so I ask that you don't use them for anything other than educational purposes. Let me show you how to install the library. Once you download it, you'll have a library file. In this case, it's called iPhoto Book Library_Start. This is a complete library that only contains lesson files for this project. You don't need to erase your current library and you don't even have to move this into your Photos folder.
When you launch iPhoto hold down the Option Key and boot up. When you do so, a prompt will come up giving you the option to switch between different iPhoto libraries. In this case, you could choose Other Library and navigate to the file, but chances are it will show up in the list here already. When you're set just click Choose and iPhoto will launch with the new photos loaded. In this case, it contains three events that we're going to use throughout the exercises of laying out a book and tweaking a few photos for better composition and exposure.
