Beware Not proper Kindle Version,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Introduction to Algorithms (Kindle Edition)
This book may have good content - I don't know because is too irritating to read !
this is because the publisher has been too lazy to produce a proper kindle version.
Very annoying at nearly £30 !
I use iPad 3 for all my reading in landscape mode - does not work well with this photocopy version
Constant panning and scanning and enlarging very tedious especially because reader lacks a default zoom option therefore needs constant resetting.
Amazes me how the publishers even those in IT have been so slow and poor at adapting to this new paradigm.
They are stupidly loosing a fortune. I would have bought many expensive books if available for kindle. I no longer buy heavy inconvenient printed technical books.

How can you rate a book that you haven't read just because you can't get a kindle version and are in capable of finding a PDF version of it? Don't ruin the review system for other people.

I was reviewing the kindle version !
Do you not understand English ?
My review is useful because it highlights how this book in kindle format is a rip off at such a high price - therefore will help to prevent someone else suffering the pain of wasting £30 that I experienced.

You can get a refund if you contact Amazon within about 24-hours. If the book is genuinely unreadable, then maybe you could still get one at this point if they're reasonable. You might also try contacting the publisher.
I've bought a couple of Kindle editions I should've asked to return. It seems that diagrams are very poorly (lazily) dealt with by many publishers, and I've probably bought my last mathematics book from the Kindle store.

C. Jack - are you saying that there are updates and they fix this issue, or are you asking if there have been updates (that fix the issue)?

+1 for clarification on whether there has been a fix

Just asking if there has been an update to fix the issues you were having with the kindle version.

Also worth pointing out the book isn't available from the Kindle Cloud Reader (Web interface) which is pretty poor.
