I don't believe he said "any format"...rather, he said "...restrict yourself
to Kindle" -- the keyword being restrict. Any restriction of distribution
is going to restrict the type and number of readers one has. If one's
trying to make a dollar or two, that type of restriction is going to be
problematic for that goal since the number of Kindle readers (e-readers,
period) is still a small segment of the reading/book-buying public.
I assume that's what he meant.
