MARKDOWN FOR WRITERS, by Gene Wilburn, is for anyone who finds word processors complex and frustrating and wishes the mechanics of writing could be simpler.

This guide introduces Markdown, and its extension, MultiMarkdown -- a system of notation that enables you to italicize, boldface, create lists and tables, enter footnotes, link to URLs, and set heading levels -- all while using a plain text editor. Markdown notation can be used on every writing device available: from Mac, Windows, and Linux PCs, to tablets and smart phones. The Markdown text you create transfers flawlessly between your devices, and is readily turned into PDF documents, Web pages, and ebooks in ePub and Kindle formats.

MARKDOWN FOR WRITERS explains Markdown and MultiMarkdown syntax, and introduces you to popular Markdown text editors that help you recover the intimacy between writer and written word by removing the distractions of ribbon bars, menus, and unnecessary features. If you've been looking for a return to simplicity in your writing life, MARKDOWN FOR WRITERS is the guide you've been waiting for.
