One option would be to make several copies of this book, and then in Sigil delete in the first copy the chapters that you don't want in be in the first book, then the same in the second, etc. Deleting chapters is easy in Sigil. Right click on the chapter name in the book browser window.

The basic idea is correct. But in case someone becomes confused, while using sigil 0.2.xx, let me amplify that the above applies most readily IF each chapter is in its own file (aka flow) within the epub. Otherwise, if the epub has not been structured in this way, separate chapters won't necessarily appear in the book browser, and you will have to search WITHIN a file to find what part of that file constitutes the chapter to be removed. In that case, in the WYSIWIG view, just block the offending material, and delete it. If you like to work in the code view, you probably don't need my advice anyway
Ideally, each chapter should be in a separate file (IMHO) but sometimes this is not the case. Hence my nit-picking advice above.

Doing this with 2.0Beta is lots faster (be sure to remove all spaces in the Text splits and images before doing any other work or it all goes into the bit bucket (bug will be fixed in next release).
