1.0 out of 5 stars DRM protected, will not load onto Kindle, 19 Oct 2013
Robert B. Franks (sheffield, yorkshire United Kingdom) - See all my reviews
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I purchased the digital copy of this book to read on my Kindle. It loads onto my PC OK and the cover loads onto the Kindle but then comes up as "Invalid item this item is protected with DRM and cannot be read on your Kindle."

Don't buy the kindle version, it won't download to a Kindle.

Have not read the book, since I can only read it on my desktop PC.

I can't give it zero stars on the Amazon system, so its rated as one star = zero (avoid).
