Update Oct 2014 - the kindle version I downloaded does not appear to be available anymore and the currently available free kindle versions have really bad reviews. My copy is good. If you are thinking of purchasing but are concerned about the formatting, do persevere and find a good e- version, even if it means paying a few quid. There is more than one version available and I personally, think it's such a great read, it worth paying for and should be much more widely read. Sort it out Amazon.
It is skilfully written and impeccably researched. The author manages to hold the attention of the reader effortlessly.
However, like another reviewer, seems corrupt. I went to re-open the book and it froze on the page I was reading, back, fwd, home, keyboard... all buttons had no effect. Pressed and held the power key and the light blinked 3 or 4 times. Blank screen. Pressed and held the power again, 3 more blinks, and it came to life and 'seems' to be OK for now...
