It just so happens I have Amazon Prime so I skimmed over it a little.
This might be useful for beginners who learn well from reading books. Of course, personally I'm well past the beginner stage and I'm a kinesthetic learner anyway, so this probably never would have helped me. (Not to mention even $10 is a bit much when you can get a great amount of tutorials and examples on here for free.) I found a lot of the images were quite unnecessary, and almost insulting to human intelligence. (For example, 0%, 25%, 50%, 75%, and 100% progress bar... Really?)
Also, I have published via Lulu, Google Books/Google Play, and Amazon KDP. Your formatting is a little inconsistent throughout. (For example, sometimes there are 2 blank lines after a title in the table of contents, other times it's just one. Or it could be the font size.) I would also suggest using page breaks. Even though eBooks don't really use page numbers, it still looks nicer if titles are at the top of the page.
One more thing: Your cover is awful. Sorry to be a downer, but really... It would be better to have a plain cover with just text than a game using the default GM resources, and not even sized to the same aspect ratio as a normal book cover. It doesn't even have to be a real game on the cover. You can just make some semi-decent graphics (or have somebody else make them who doesn't mind you taking ownership of them and selling the book without them receiving profit), and just make a mock-up game for the cover. It will make it MUCH more appealing, as that's the first thing that draws one's attention to a book.
