Penguin Version for Kindle: No table of Contents, as of April 2013,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Complete Essays (Kindle Edition)
Just a word of caution about the Penguin version on Kindle: there is no table of contents. If you want to open the book at a specific page then you have to press for every page turn, or have put a bookmark there, or know what you are searching for.
Basically, you cannot browse, you have to read it cover to cover, turning one page at a time.
Which is crazy in a book of this size.
I have just returned it from my Kindle. If the publisher fixes this issue I'll buy the Kindle version again, the translation was very readable.

I bought my Kindle version in November 2011, and it has a fully working, linked contents page. Judging from the 'Look Inside' function the same is true as I write (January 2014) so perhaps this was a temporary glitch. In fact, and despite a relatively small number of textual errors, I find the Kindle version extremely useful and practical. In particular the essential notes are functional and easy to get in and out of, and given the relatively small type of some of the pb version I find the Aa function useful.
