I did that years ago. Unless it's common for your users to print out
whole books using duplex printers, it makes sense to get rid of all
the book-oriented stuff. To me that generally means:

- no left / right formatting
- title page is page 1 and page numbering is strictly sequential
- no blank pages
- no sidebars or multiple columns
- all paragraph styles start at the left margin
- no chapter numbers
- no numbered headings
- no table and figure captions
- no lists of tables and figures

I can't even remember what they call that style where the headings
start at the margin but the paragraph styles are all indented.
