Doubly annoying - style and Kindle format,
This review is from: A Classical Education: The Stuff You Wish You'd Been Taught At School (Kindle Edition)
This might be okay in paperback to dip into occasionally - while contemplating as another reviewer mentions.
But the Kindle version is extremely aggravating - 1. Every page seems to have a footnote which is a real faff to navigate with a Kindle and the content isn't rewarding (see 3.) and 2. I find the font extremely hard to read - it's not a matter of size it's the actual face. It seems to be like reading a scanned pdf rather than one printed electronically. 3. The greatest pain comes from the style though - it seems the author wonders why anyone would read it and having started I'm inclined to agree. There's the odd nugget of useful or interesting information but it'll be a struggle if I finish reading the book - probably only if I run out of purchased books.
Finally, references to page numbers on a Kindle is useless when the page numbers aren't included in the file. There are no chapter markers either so you can't flick through the sections (okay so you can use the ToC but that's not quick and easy)
On the plus side it was only 99p when I bought it.
