About the Author
William Shakespeare was born in April 1564 in the town of Stratford-upon-Avon, on England's Avon River. When he was eighteen, he married Anne Hathaway. The couple had three children an older daughter Susanna and twins, Judith and Hamnet. Hamnet, Shakespeare's only son, died in childhood. The bulk of Shakespeare's working life was spent in the theater world of London, where he established himself professionally by the early 1590s. He enjoyed success not only as a playwright and poet, but also as an actor and shareholder in an acting company. Although some think that sometime between 1610 and 1613 Shakespeare retired from the theater and returned home to Stratford, where he died in 1616, others believe that he may have continued to work in London until close to his death.

There is no index, no table of contents. It's starts with The Sonnets, which are just spewed out without being numbered, and all you can do is go back or forward. I tried to search for 'Anthony' in order to find Anthony and Cleopatra but it informed me it hadn't been indexed. So this is essentially useless as I am not going to scroll through the entire works of Shakespeare. I bought it to have it on my Kindle for reference in addition to a copy at home. I will be seeking a refund as I cant understand how this is remotely usable.
No notes, eassay or summaries. It's very hard to follow, with the characters name being same font as their lines. Lots of room for notes, but that's because the text is all cramped up in center of book. This was for a kid doing GCSE. I struggled to follow it myself.
