Tom - Put the 1.3 GB file on a server and let the reviewers download it to their computers. I'm assuming they have desktop computers with iBooks Author installed and iPads with iBooks installed. They can then Preview it on their iPads. Download time depends on server throughput speed. - Fabe

Thanx for your answer,
but I don't want to send them the .iba file, only the iBooks export.
and I cannot ask to my peer reviewer to buy a mac and install iBook Author in order to be able to preview my book on their iPad.
I hope there are easiest way to share large iBooks directly on iPad

i tried to drag it directly to the book on my ipad, but it didn't work.
I didn't notice I should first drag it in my library and the sync it !
Anyway, I would like to find a way to be able to share it without itunes...
Thanx for your help,

As long as you can get the exported file to others, and let them drag to iTunes and preview on their iPad, that will do. How to pass them the file is another issue - the simplest is to use Dropbox public URL.

I've a 390MB .ibooks file that I made and I need to put it on a few ipads without using iTunes.
I tried the dropbox method:
-after downloading the .ibooks file in dropbox and choosing "open with iBooks" dropbox app went stuck on "exporting file" spinning wheel forever.
So I tried the web download method:
-I put the .ibooks file on a webserver, downloaded the file with safari then pressed the "open in iBooks" button: the button seems unresponsive. After a *very* long time (20-30 minutes) the file was eventually transferred to ibooks.
This is going to confuse every user I ask to download the book.
Do you have any advice please?

Hi, same problem here. Although mine is only 20 MB.
I tried to send it per e-mail but the e-mail client from ipad doesn't know what to do with it. iMessage doens't know what to do with it.
Is there really no elegant way to do it? Dropbox not ok because of confidentiality issues.
[Update]: This book of my is a manual for functionality of a multinational organization. Is there a way maybe to install it on an internal itunes server?
