Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The printed book is very good (5*+}BUT the Kindle version only works on some Kindles & Kindle Apps.And even the Kindles it does run on seem to be a very unsatisfactory experience. There is no way to change font size, with modified word flow to keep each line within the screen page width.
