From what you describe, I'd suggest writing the book using 1.4.6, but write
it about 1.5.2 or 1.5.3. That way you will have a stable version for
writing your book, but the book will not be completely outdated when it is

It is possible to have the two versions installed side by side.

If you, during the course, feels that the 1.5 version is stable enough, you
can always transfer your projekt to that version of you want the features
it provides.
