Works fine (if Flash is ok with you)
By , for WP 3.5.1

Once setup, Issuu PDF Sync works very smooth here, making it extremely easy to include PDF as "flipbooks" in my posts.

Sample: http://www.kegnaes-friskole.dk/penalhuset/

So if you can live with the Flash based (and thus less mobile friendly) results of Issuu, Issuu PDF Sync may be just fine for you...

Simplifying using Issuu
By , for WP 3.2.1

After reading the FAQ and installation it's essential then you can get this plugin running saving you time and effort.

After you install and configure "Issuu PDF Sync" plugin, you do not need to visit issuu.com again for any NEW PDF. The "Issuu PDF Sync" Installation and FAQ does not make it clear that you load your next PDF into wordpress media library FIRST, then the plugin will "push" it to issuu.com via the Issuu API. In the media library your PDF has a property indicating it "sync" status with issuu.com (useful check when something is not working). You can then add to your post using the "Issuu PDF Sync" button added to you tinyMCE post editor (see plugin settings page if it is not visible)

In summary, the main benefit is saving you the need to open Issuu.com to get your document id key, and you add PDF using WordPress tinyMCE editor "Add media" button, and then use plugin to build flipbook code for you.

You may also be using an "add download" in word-press post editor if you want a download link (I use WordPress Download Monitor plugin). This make it simple for web site user. For the wordpress user you have two copies of PDF and that is a bit confusing to novice WordPress user (correct me if there is better plugin combination)
