Switching to a possible 10 views - how many view controllers?

I'm writing a "guide" style app which will display static content dependant on what category the user selects. From the main menu there is an option of reading/displaying 10 different views each loaded from 10 different buttons. Each view will contain text and some graphics (nothing heavy).

What's the best way of doing this?

Should I have one view controller for all or one view controller for each view?

You can decide to select between a single view controller or multiple view controllers based on these -

a) Data that the model is going to handle: If the data can be seggregated to be independent for each views, then you can go for multiple models, views and controllers. If you have any interdependencies between the data, then it best not to split them across models

b) Even if you have a single data model, it is perfectly fine to have multiple view-controllers. This is much cleaner, and you will have excellent control on what you want to do with the view. This will be highly maintainable and light weight while executing, because only the necessary views need to be loaded. You should keep a controller for each view, again for the maintainability aspects. This will also enable you to abstract and encapsulate the business logic behind the views.
