2.0 out of 5 stars Sadly, far too many spelling errors spoil this for me..., 28 Dec 2011
Trying to be fair, it's a great read if you take the history 'with a pinch of salt'. Enjoy the book for what it is...but...

There are far too many spelling and typing errors on this kindle version for my liking and to be honest it spoilt the book for me. It starts with the introduction - the sheer number of mistakes even in that (not historical, I might add!) is infuriating. Do the people who create the ebooks from the originals not even bother to read what they produce?

It's an important and interesting book, but the quality really spoils this version. Either buy a better eversion, the physical book or just don't bother...

There are thousands and thousands of free kindle books out there - the errors in these are more than acceptable from the volunteers who do this for us all to benefit. Actually BUYING an ebook of such poor quality (even at under a quid) is really annoying.

Sorry...
