Why only two levels?
Two levels are generally enough for all books, three levels may lead to poorly structured documents. The Book module is designed for the creation of short multi-page study materials. Consider uploading a file in PDF format for longer documents.
How do I search within a book resource?
There is no internal search facility, though you can always use your web browser's search capability in print page view.
Can I import a powerpoint into a book?
See the forum post Semi-automated Powerpoint to Book import macrofor one possible method.
Can I change the font of the print view for Book?
Not easily. In book view your theme controls how is your book is displayed, where as during printing, book/tool/print/print.css determines the font, which is defaulted to Times New Roman. See https://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=220147#p972743
A hack: you can in Print view use some utility like Firebug to change the font.
