I mean, if Jacob was forbidden to tell her about their existence, who would think it was okay to put it in a book?
OR, was Jake permitted to talk about vampires in general, but not allowed to share the story of the Cullens?
In any case, I'm not sure I buy the idea of the book as a source for Bella's epiphany.
I really think it could have stayed the same as in the book without any difficulty.
I think you answered it in your OR question. The book is about the legends in general, Jake's knowledge was of a reality exposing the Cullen's directly.
