I've just published my first Kindle book ([i]Shortcuts for Windows PCs[/i]) and Amazon completely eliminated the Title Page and the next page -- the one that says this book is copyrighted by me, with contact information. I've written and published eight printed editions of my primary book ([i]Winning with the News Media[/i]) and was told that the copyright, ISBN, etc. were very important to protect my rights to the content. Why would Amazon trash all that info?

If you want your book to open at the beginning, instead of the first page of text, you must put a <div id="start"> tag there, or a start bookmark in Word.

I put the copyright page at the back, hotlinked from the title page and the TOC if there is one, so as to get best value out of the Look Inside feature.

Duh! I'm new to this Kindle thing, viewing with Kindle for PCs. When I opened my newly purchased book, it popped open at the Preface section. Didn't occur to me that it would start at the first page that was part of the Table of Contents. Thanks for turning on the light.
