You should be able to read the same iBook that's on your iPhone on an iPad.
On your iPad tap Settings > Store. Make sure Books is swtiched ON.
The same iBook cannot be read on a Mac. Two different operating systems. Mac OS X vs iOS.

No, you have to use it with an i-device, not a computer. I'm not sure it is Apple to blame. Apple is pretty restricted by what the publishers will allow. You can bet if Apple could sell something and make more money from computer readers they would.

For ebooks, I have a Nook - Barnes and Noble, Amazon, Kobo all make their own ereaders of course, but they all also have free reader apps for their bookstore purchases that run on other mobile devices, as well as on OS X and Windows computers.
If you want to be able to read on basically any device or either mainstream computer OS, just go with Nook, Kindle, or Kobo - download their apps to whatever you want to read on, including all iOS devices.
