Buy the Paperback version. It is cheaper. The Kindle edition I bought had several defects. The maps are very difficult to read on the screen (very small lettering) and it is inconvenient to go back to them when you are reading. I found that some pages seemed to be duplicated which was confusing.
The style and content are excellent and the prologue pointed out that when the book was written there were very few or no studies in Spanish or other languages of this period.
