Great book, awful kindle edition
on 20 June 2012
The rating for this review reflects not the quality of the book itself, but that of the kindle edition. The print book contains peripheral text boxes that enhances the core text with additional information and supplementing resources. However, in the kindle edition, these text boxes are not set aside in convenient margin settings, but in fact intrude unannounced within the core text. The result is that as you read, all of a sudden, mid-sentence, the main text is interrupted with this peripheral information and the main text may not resume for several pages. The result is a text that is bewildering, frustrating, immensely difficult to read and not worth downloading even if it were free... Given that such problems occur with nearly every page, you are infinitely better off buying the print edition. The kindle edition should embarrass and shame whomever is responsible for its unforgivable existence - were they drunk at work? I cannot work out how such an awful, unusable product was approved for sale.
