2.0 out of 5 stars Poor Kindle presentation, 7 Oct 2010
This review applies only to the Kindle version.

The print edition of this book is a fantastic, weighty tome and is well worth every penny. Unfortunately the same cannot be said of the Kindle edition. For such a huge text, the failure to take advantage of hyperlinks makes browsing the book a frustrating experience. In addition, mathematical graphics and equations are rendered in low resolution and are virtually unreadable. As the Kindle device is perfectly capable of rendering high quality graphical content, this lapse is unforgiveable in an ebook costing this much.

Disappointing.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good content, substandard presentation (Kindle edition), 6 Oct 2010
This review applies specifically to the Kindle edition.

While the content of the dictionary is up to the standard I would expect, the presentation of mathematical equations and figures is not, being of barely acceptable low resolution. If consumers are to be expected to pay similar prices for ebooks as their printed equivalents, particularly given the restrictions of the former, they have a right to expect similar quality.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great music let down by poor recording, 7 Sep 2006
While the music is beautiful, I found the voices that can be heard in the background of virtually every track extremely off putting.
