I've purchased the Smart Book extension after a good experience with the previous Flip Book module. Had some small issues with the RTL support which was solved in less then an hour. This guys are FAST. The component is easy to setup and does what it suppose to do, clean and smart. JED should add a 5+ rating option for this guys.



Highly recommended.
