I actually really don't care how it's solved, having it all in one book 
was just one idea.  My definition of "book" maybe should be called a 
"compendium" or something - a collection of books.

Derby document (Developer's Guide, for example) to another (Reference, 
for example) without five clicks to navigate through the hierarchy again.
