Yes, there is some confusion here.
It depends upon whether of not the publication has Digital Rights Protection (DRM).
If it has then it can only be read with the Adobe Digital Editions reader.
Before purchasing look at the top right corner of the product page.
If it states " Available in PDF Format" as here
the it is a PDF that can be read on a PC or iPad.
If it states "Available in EPUB for Adobe Digital Editions Format" as here
then you can't read it on your iPad.
In this case you have to buy it from the Apple iBookstore as a standard EPUB.

I'll let the folks at Lulu know as you're not the first to get caught out.
They may be able to do something to make it clearer.
If the book is by a Lulu Forum member you can identify then you may be able to PM them and ask for a replacement copy.
