Please more respect for the reader!,
This review is from: 1914-1918: The History of the First World War (Paperback)
Please don't get me wrong this is by far one of the best book about the Great war. The problem is the simple fact of beeing publish in letter size 8, or even less, and can only be read with a magnifying glass.

I completely agree, I found the content unreadable due to the tiny ant like print. If it hurts your eyes struggling to read it it doesn't matter how good the writing might be. A quite reasonable review and warning for anyone considering buying this book.

The print may be small, but a low review of one stars is misleading and lowers the overall rating, it's a moronic original review to give this book one star, when will people learn that the review system is meant to help others, these reviews just tell us that some people have poorer vision than others.

Agreed. The rating system applies to the content of the book, the writing style and other authorial factors, not the production of the book, which is an entirely separate matter. Stevenson's work is one of the best available about the Great War and, as said, a gratuitous one-star review on such flimsy grounds artificially reduces its overall average rating.

Absolute rubbish - the rating system applies to all aspects of the book not just the content. It is completely reasonable to give a poor rating if the book is poorly produced even if the content is good. Although I must admit one star in this particular case seems harsh. However I for one always look at the one and two star reviews first to see any potential problems with either content or production. In this case there are plenty of five star reviews reviews indicating a likely excellent content, so a couple of one stars to warn of other problems is quite reasonable.
