Just had to return a kindle book for the very first time, as this book suffers from terrible formatting.
Firstly as a reference book you would expect a reasonable table of contents so you can jump to topics, well there are literally just a few very general links which don't link to specific topics.
Secondly many of the tables quoting examples are truncated to the right so you cannot read the examples whilst the kindle (I have a Kindle 3) is in portrait mode, you have to switch to landscape and back again - very poor.
Thirdly Mr Scrivenor obviously knows his subject well but he takes great delight, when describing very simple terms such as 'nouns' or 'verbs', in throwing in loads of advanced stuff which frankly just bloats and confuses the defininitions. I was hoping to brush up on some basic English Grammar but really had to wade through a lot of unknown concepts even when reading the easy straightforward stuff. This book may be more suitable for somebody who did know grammar very well and needs a refresher rather than somebody wishing to learn some basic principles well.
Maybe I will give the other English Grammar book a go as one reviewer has suggested.
