3.0 out of 5 stars Way to small!, 29 Sept. 2011
This book is way too small! To give you an idea of what I mean, just compare its dimensions (19.4 x 13 x 5.2 cm) with those of its hardcover counterpart: 25.6 x 19.3 x 2.2 cm. Or to give an easier estimate, compare the number of pages: 256 in the hardcover, whereas this one has 1280! My point is this: the font size is very small, and the in footnotes even more! I've only yet started reading it, but it's becoming a really big annoyance (no pun intended).

Having said that, it's proving a very interesting read. For what I've read so far, it would get a rating of 5, were it not for the absurdly small fonts. With hindsight, I'd go for the hardcover without a second thought.
