Is there a way to create interactive books with MATLAB, i.e. you read the book and run the scripts within the book, manipulate the graphs, even change the code (maybe without being able to save the modifcations) and see the changes of the graph? > > With the competitor software Mathematica (which I don't like too much) you can publish interactive books and read/use them with the Wolfram CDF Player or webMathematica.

R (the open-source statistical programming language) now has a package called Shiny (go to www.rstudio.com) which lets you wrap R functions into applets. Obviously MATLAB has functionality that R doesn't have (and vice versa), but that could be another alternative if R would work for your needs and if you can spend the time learning it.
