How to Convert iTunes Audiobook to MP3?

It seems that most of us used to download and enjoying movies, TV shows, and music from the iTunes Store. However, iTunes Store also provides a number of audiobooks in M4B or M4A format. These audiobooks can be downloaded and transferred to iPod, iPhone or iPad for listening to. To our disappointment, Apple encodes them with its exclusive format which makes it impossible for you to listen to iTunes audiobooks on an MP3 player or other audio players.
