Add content to your book
You can start adding content straight into your book via the Organise option in the side-menu.
Front matter can include title page and copyright notice, acknowledgements, introduction, preface, forward or prologue. Pressbooks lets you specify 21 types of front matter. You can include as much (or as little) front matter in your book as you like.
