Look here.
For the Mac version you will need Classic, OS 9 or earlier.
I used to use Newton Press, but when it became too much trouble to run  
Classic I began using NewtsCape.  bit of a learning curve.

Look here for some tips.

A newton book is text that has been formatted to be displayed as  a  
Newtonbook with specific parameters and features such as size of page  
and table of contents.  It's the page size that causes problems.

With a Mac you can view the contents of a Newtonbook with Textedit on  
a PC I'm sure there is a way.  In fact you could clean it up and use  
one of the book makers to create the type you need.

Paperback creates a form of book from text.  Many people like it for  
its simplicity.
