1.0 out of 5 stars Poor Kindle edition, 6 Oct 2010
While Simon Singh's books are excellent, unfortunately the Kindle edition is not. All figures (diagrams and pictures) in the paper edition are missing, making the book difficult to follow.

One perhaps to get in paper format.

3.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book, poor Kindle edition, 4 Sep 2010
This review is from: Snow Crash (Kindle Edition)
I own the paperback version of Snow Crash so wouldn't hesitate in rating it five stars, but it would seem that for the Kindle edition the publishers lazily OCR-ed a paper copy without proofreading it.

Many words are misspelt (e.g. corner becomes comer, run becomes rum), punctuation is missing and the occasional word (mostly abbreviations) is replaced with blank spaces. There is at least one mistake every three or four pages (though often several on one page) which really rips you out of a very enjoyable read.

Definitely one to buy as a paperback.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not a 'special edition', 1 Aug 2008
When I received my copy of Batman Begins it did not include a lenticular cover, art cards or Dark Knight preview as mentioned in other reviews, I'm guessing this was a limited time offer?

Apart from that, this is a fantastic movie that really benefits from the Blu-Ray format.
