It really depends how sophisticated you need it to be, and as I say, no sooner do you finish it than more material or information will come along and it will need revised.  I would keep it simple and use a standard Word programme - and then save as pdf, if you want.

I'd stick with MSWord. As someone already mentioned you can format the Word document very nicely and include photos etc and convert it to pdf with a pdf printer as a last step. I also used this resulting pdf format for Print on demand of hard copies which were published via Createspace (later bought by Amazon) and Ingram Sparks.
As to converting to epub digital format it is a bit more involved if you do it yourself using software such as Calibre but you can use a publisher such as Smashwords to convert from MSWord to epub and many other ebook formats more easily.
It beats learning an entirely new system from scratch and all of the above are free tools.

My two cents,
