3.0 out of 5 stars In Need of Adjustment, 4 Dec 2010
This review is from: Check the Technique: Liner Notes for Hip-Hop Junkies (Kindle Edition)
This is a great looking book but the Kindle version is entirely mashed up, and not in a good way. Stray pictures and capital letters appear mid-chapter for no reason, each track in the 2 Live Crew chapter is prefixed by a large image of the Beastie Boys... Artists are given incongruous names like "Tone LDC" (huh?) and one Beastie Boys album is repeatedly called "Licensed To One Hundred and Eleven". I'm fairly sure the original book, which seems to be a solid and comprehensive work, has none of these problems, so respect is due, but at the time of writing the ebook version is totally messed up and impossible to rate.

This isn't the kindle version though, it's the book version. Post your opinion on the relevant page because this page is for people who want to buy the book, and I've read it and there are no mistakes and it is an essential book if you are a hip hop fan.

They did though - Amazon annoyingly merges all format reviews together for the product.
