Poor formatting makes this unreadable,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire (Penguin Classics) (Paperback)
I purchased this penguin version of Decline and Fall hoping for an abridged, more modern version of the original. Penguin achieves both aspects well. However, I simply had to give up after a few chapters because the formatting of the book makes it unreadable on a Kindle or with the Kindle app on a Mac. The headings for the numerous sections and subsections within in each chapter FOLLOW the text. This means that in order to understand what you are about to read, you need to page forward several pages on your Kindle to the end of the section, page back to the beginning of the section to read the text and then repeat the whole laborious process for the next section. Such a shame.
