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.
