This video book is a CD-ROM for your computer that contains video that is embedded into the pages of a pdf document. It has neat features like being able to quickly flip through the pages on your computer screen, and zoom in/out, and search for keyword phrases. It can also contain links to other pages in the document or clickable links that will launch your web browser to search the internet. It is much better than watching a VHS tape, because you can quickly find the scene you are looking for in just a few seconds. And best of all, you can proceed and learn at your own pace.
By marrying video with text and illustrations, you get the best of both worlds. You can print out things, like the parts and tool list, and still be able to watch the videos.
