What book writing software exists for Max OSX?

I want to write a book that will be likely published at Lulu. This will be a book on how to use a specific website building CMS, so it will be a typical instructional book.

I know about Scrivener and am really tempted to give it a try.

I also might just use my copy of Pages.

What else is out there?

Actually, it's been a couple of years since the question was last asked, so it seems worth asking in the light of new software released since then. I don't think the responses to the earlier question mentioned Scrivener.

I wrote a book in Scrivener and loved it.

Apparently Scrivener is the bomb.

Steven Poole has an interesting read story on his move from Word to Writeroom.

I was looking for a good notetaking application and ended up trying out a bunch of book writing software. I settled on Avenir and MacJournal. Avenir is supposedly built for fiction, but you can easily adapt it to your own needs as it's fairly flexible. I use MacJournal for daily writing and quick idea jotting.

Some really great software out there. I checked a few out and will be going forward with Scrivener, thanks all!
